The Madison Weavers guild was established over 60 years ago. Over the years, we have continued to help people learn about the art of weaving and discuss weaving’s challenges and joys.
Our in-person meetings are not being held due to COVID-19, but we will meet via Zoom until further notice. Our meetings are on the third Monday of the month, 7:00 – 8:30 pm. See the Events Page for the schedule for 2020-21.
March 15th– Guatemalan Backstrap Weaving with Hellen Ascolli
Hellen Ascoli (Guatemala City / Madison, WI) is an artist, weaver, and educator; although these first three words are named separately to convey the area of discourse that Ascoli engages with, it could also just say “Weaver” a word that encompasses the other two. Ascoli weaves on the back strap loom to connect body / tool / material / site. Her practice looks at embodied practices and material culture as a way to understand her surroundings.
