Cheyenne Weaver is an artist, designer, and naturalist who is inspired by the challenges of living sustainably. When she’s not chasing beetles Cheyenne does front-end web development for Red Hat, makes sculpture, and freelances occasionally. Recent freelance work includes t-shirt designs for the band Arcade Fire and identity/web design for SoftwareMill. Recent exhibitions include participating in the East Austin Studio Tour, and Damaged Romantics, held at the Grey Gallery in New York and the Blaffer Gallery in Houston. Cheyenne graduated with a BFA from CalArts in 2004.

It is important to me that the principles of sustainability and permaculture always remain a priority in my long-term approach to design.

Girls Guild Pilot sessions are open for sign up!

A community connecting artists and makers in apprenticeship.

Happy Spring!

Diana and I have been hard at work meeting with fabulous artists, makers, and business women across Austin to curate our first pilot guild sessions, and we’re super excited to show off our core group of makers!

Artists and Makers

We’ll be holding our first pilot session with jeweler Anna Gieselman, the woman behind Rarewears, who will be holding a session on how to make elegant hoop & bead earrings as well as wire and bead necklaces on Sunday April 15th, 4-6pm! If you know any girls between the ages of 12 and 19 who would be interested, have them sign up to work with Anna!

Our subsequent pilot sessions will be happening throughout April and May with various ages, 12 and up. Please pass along the Girls Guild website to any teenage girls or parents of young women who might be interested in working with one of our makers!
Most of the sessions will last 2-3 hours and then we’ll ask the girls to provide us some feedback on it afterwards so we can design the sessions to best fit their needs.

We’re so excited to be piloting soon, and we’re honored to have your support!
As always, send us an email or Facebook message with any insights or ideas you may have. And we would be eternally grateful for any contacts to schools, girls organizations, or individuals who might be interested in our pilot!

Happy Making!
