An exhibition of handwoven and handcrafted textiles, Woven Together: Experience & Expression, will be shown in the East Gallery of the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, California, from January 13, 2017 thru February 12, 2017. Art pieces, fashion, sculpture, wearable art, weaving for the home, and fine craft made by members of the Loom and Shuttle Guild will be displayed, reflecting a wide range of techniques and skills. Items include woven scarves, shawls, bags, jackets, table runners, tapestries, baskets, carpets, and stitched textiles. Items will be available for purchase.

The Loom and Shuttle Guild, a San Francisco weaving guild founded in 1948, draws participants from all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Members come not only from textile, fine art, and fashion careers, but from a diversity of fields such as music, teaching, technology, graphic design, writing, architecture, nursing, law, science, and more. Many artists have been weaving for decades, and many exhibit their work in local and national exhibits. New members continue to join the guild and expand their knowledge about the art and craft of weaving.

The guild’s purpose is to promote high standards of weaving, to stimulate public interest and appreciation in handweaving and fiber art, and to offer educational opportunities. Demonstrations of weaving, spinning, and braiding will be scheduled periodically throughout the exhibit, and posted on the Loom and Shuttle website.

Open to all, this free exhibit highlights the ancient craft of handweaving still practiced today. There is ample free parking and the Sanchez Art Center is wheelchair accessible.
