The Faculty Club is the site of numerous events, both private and public, which are too many to publish.  For example, the UC Berkeley Career Center reports that 90% of campus recruiting events are held at our facility.

Monthly Art Exhibit  - Golden Gate Weaver's Guild

The Golden Gate Weaver’s Guild was established in 1938 and is the oldest Weaving Guild in California. We meet at the North Berkeley Senior Center nine times a year, when usually have a speaker on a subject related to textiles.

For the last 10 years we have had an outreach program to schools where we demonstrate weaving and spinning and then allowed the children to weave.
We have exhibited our weavings every year since 2011. Exhibit Venues include Marvin Gardens in Kensington, the East Bay Municipal Water District Headquarters in Oakland, and the Tilden Nature Center. In 2014 we celebrated our 75th anniversary with a show at the Conference of Northern California Handweavers at the Marriot Convention Center in Oakland. In 2015 we had our first show at the Faculty Club at UC Berkeley. We were delighted to be asked to return in 2016.
