The Weavers Guild of Minnesota, 3000 S.E. University Ave., Minneapolis, is offering a visiting artist workshop, “Color in Cloth: the Weaves You Want and Why” with Cameron Taylor-Brown, Friday-Sunday, May 12-14.
Participants must have warped a loom previously and be able to read basic weaving drafts. Cost is $360 for guild members and $396 for nonmembers. There is also a $25 materials fee, which is payable to the instructor. Looms will be available for use in the classroom, or participants may bring their own loom.
Taylor-Brown has immersed herself in fiber, education and commerce since the 1970s. Since 1985, she has lived in Los Angeles, where she maintains a studio and is active in several arts organizations. She was a founding board member of the Textile Group of Los Angeles and recently founded ARTSgarage, a textile resource center in Los Angeles.

The Weavers Guild of Minnesota was founded in 1940 by six women and has established itself as a nationally recognized resource for the arts of weaving, spinning and dyeing. The guild offers classes and events year round, serving nearly 700 new and experienced fiber artists each year. It was the catalyst in the formation of the Textile Center, where the guild currently maintains classroom, retail and library space.
