The Tacoma Weavers Guild opens a show on Friday, Nov. 12 featuring its members’ textiles in the Handforth Gallery of the Tacoma Public Library.

Opening day festivities will include the premiere of a documentary, created by Kate Jantz-Koprivnik, on the guild. If you go, wear your handwoven garb!

“The Art of Weaving” runs through Dec. 31 at the downtown library, 1102 Tacoma Ave. S., Tacoma. There’s also a historical display upstairs in the library’s Northwest Room.

Itching to try out weaving? You’ll get your chance at the guild’s weaving workshop for all ages at the main library from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 20. Would-be weavers can learn to use looms, spinning wheels and other equipment.
