Transformation through Cordage

Turning worn, beloved, or ragged garments and fabrics into beautiful and strong lengths of cord that can be worn and used anew.

The process is fun, simple, and repetitive in a way that leaves room for conversation, laughter, contemplation. Cordage making is accessible to folks who would not consider themselves crafty as well as to artists wanting to explore another way of engaging with materials.

Colorado Grasslands Challenge 

Inspired by our 2023 March and April guest speakers, both of whom talked about how fiber artists respond to their surroundings in their work, and art can be activism, Handweavers Guild of Boulder challenges you to let your imagination run Wild this year as you knit, crochet, felt, bead, quilt, weave, embroider, etc, inspired by the topic of our Colorado prairie and grassland.

We’ll come together in late Fall to see what we all made, and if we have a good body of work, look for a place to display it in 2024, perhaps in conjunction with the Guild’s 60th anniversary.

We've compiled many great resources to inspire you, which can be found here or here as a pdf.
