The AMB would like to put together a list of teachers. This list could then be used as a resource for new beginners or guilds looking for workshop instructors. Please fill out this survey if interested in having your name included. You must be an AMB member to be included on the list. This is a list of current teachers.
The AMB is looking for instructions for beginning weavers wanting to learn to make baskets. These instructions should include photos or drawings that a beginning weaver can understand. Please do not make copies from books, as that is a violation of copyright laws. If you have any instructions that can be posted on the Resources page, please send them to the Webmaster.
Is your guild hosting an outside Workshop and would like others to know about it? Send an e-mail to the Webmaster and it can be displayed on the website.
