Since our earliest days, we have always felt strongly about education and outreach. 在开始的时候, we worked closely with the Denver and Boulder free schools to offer classes in weaving and 旋转. Barry Schacht was an advocate at the time about the importance of paying teachers. 第一个, he felt teachers should be paid because this would lend a level of professionalism to the program. 其次, he felt that if students had to pay to take a class, 即使是象征性的费用, it would help increase their commitment. Hundreds learned to weave and spin and with this success, Dan and Barry Schacht opened The 编织 Shop with other friends on Walnut Street in Boulder, where even more in-depth education was possible.

五十年后, we continue to believe in the critical role that education plays and have developed several initiatives that support the teaching of weaving and 旋转.

The Handweavers Guild of Boulder Schacht Outreach Fund

When Barry and Dan first came to Boulder, there was already a weaver’s guild. Many of its members provided valuable feedback to the young loom makers. In 2014, the Handweavers Guild of Boulder celebrated its 50th 周年纪念日, and to honor this milestone, we set up a fund to encourage innovative outreach. It has helped provide education to elementary schools, makerspace培训, and educational outreach to art teachers, 在其他项目.

 

博尔德纤维节

在地方层面上, 我们帮助成立了Fiber Fest, along with the City of Boulder makerspace and the Handweavers Guild of Boulder. This summer event is free to the public and shares our love of weaving, 旋转, and the textile arts with the public. This one-day event offers try-it stations where the public can weave on a variety of looms, 试着用手纺纱, 针织, 靛蓝染色, 和毡呢. It is a great way to connect with people who might never have thought about or seen the textile arts. We encourage you to offer a Fiber Fest in your community. It’s so much fun, and worth all of the thrill of discovery from parents and kids alike.
