The Handweavers Guild of America, HGA, maintain 4 important Certificate of Excellence, COE, programs for textile artists, weaving, spinning, dyeing and basketry. There have been several adjustments and revisions to keep the COE programs relevant in the past 40 plus years. It is one of the current mastery programs.
I hold both the Technical level and the Master’s Certificates in Handspinning. I have been participant, reviewer, revision advisor and judge in that field. My story tracks my challenges and triumphs. Samples of my work and plenty of time for questions and answers.
The COE programs encourage independent learning and mastering yourself in your chosen field.
