SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

The CHT Scholarship program has been established to support individuals in their pursuit of fiber arts in the state of Texas.

Do you have a great idea for a workshop but need funds to get it off the ground? Have you ever seen a great workshop you could take and share new techniques with your local  guild? Or perhaps you have a focus on the craft of weaving for research and teaching.

Because the CHT’s mission is to support individuals and guilds in Texas through education and networking of the history, the craft, the art, fashion and innovation in weaving, spinning and related fiber arts techniques, CHT has committed to provide financial scholarships to our members.

The scholarship opens the door to opportunities to learn more about weaving, spinning, and related fiber arts techniques and share that knowledge with the CHT community.
