Guild History and Information
Art Through The Loom Guild was founded more than thirty-five years ago in the Northern Rio Grande Valley with the idea of training youth to work with traditional Chimayó weavers. It was the hope of members that by doing this, weaving traditions would be handed down through generations. The guild presents weaving exhibitions and promotes weaving and hand-spinning skills. Although the guild was begun on the premise of handing down traditional weaving practices, it is by no means limited to traditional looking pieces.
Our focus is on weaving, spinning, and dyeing, and, to a lesser extent on techniques that use handwoven, handspun, or hand-dyed materials including knit and crochet items, dolls, and colcha.
Guild members participate as a group in three to four shows and sales each year. We sponsor workshops and discussions focused on developing a successful fiber arts career.
