MLH 2020 Members Virtual Fiber Exhibit

Welcome to an MLH first!  The MLH 2020 Member Exhibit, showcasing around 117 pieces consisting of rugs, towels, table runners, some clothing, tapestry and wall hangings, along with other fiber art created by 46 of our members, is a celebration of our members and a testament to our resilience in these unprecedented times.  Wanting to provide an exhibit opportunity to our membership after cancellation of the 21st Biennial exhibit, a juried ‘in-person’ exhibit sponsored by MLH in even-numbered years, members were encouraged to submit digital photographs of up to three of their fiber creations for this virtual exhibit. You will be able to view the pieces submitted and pull up information on each piece along with information on the artist.  Some pieces are offered for sale. See the instructions for initiating contact to purchase if interested. Please enjoy viewing this celebration of our members and their work as we start Spinning & Weaving Week 2020.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the pieces that are for sale please send an email to virtualexhibit@mlhguild.org with your contact information and  the name of the artist and the piece you are interested in.  We will send your information on to the artist and they will contact you.  

 

MENTORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES through MLH

    

 

I am happy to report that our first Mentor & Mentee have recently begun working together!  The Mentee is a new weaver with a couple new harness looms to figure out, and the Mentor is experienced and happy to help!

 

We currently have mentors available who are willing to help with these topics:

  • RIGID HEDDLE WEAVING - various possibilities of weaving on a rigid heddle.
  • BEGINNER - ADVANCED WEAVING - any structure.
  • COLOR & DYING - color and dyeing,  synthetic and natural dyes.

 

If you are interested in learning from someone, please complete the Mentee request form and email to  mentorship@mlhguild.org

 

The more topics we can offer, the better, and I know there are many talented weavers in MLH!  If you would like to be coach a new friend, please send a completed Mentor request form to mentorship@mlhguild.org

 

Happy Weaving!
