GCW Master Weaver Certificate

Program Overview


One of the current and original purposes of the Guild of Canadian Weavers is 'To prepare and set examinations at designated periods for the benefit of those wishing to qualify for the four stages of regular membership in the Guild'. 

The GCW is proud to have graduated many accomplished and well respected weavers. To purchase media about our Canadian Master Weavers, please click here.

While anyone may join the GCW, only successful candidates go beyond being Weaving Members. This is a testing program, not a teaching program. The four stages of testing are: Basic, Intermediate, Senior, and Master.
