Instructor: Laurie Duxbury

Come learn how to weave textiles that were in common household use during the 18th and 19th centuries. Students will weave a number of samples, depending on class size, of different fabrics. Huck-A-Buck, M’s and O’s, Spot Bronson, and Overshot were common structures used for household linens and clothing. Other fabrics included cotton toweling, linsey-woolsey, and wool blanketing. In this three-day workshop we will weave on pre-warped looms in round robin style. Spend time with friends connecting with each other while remembering the weavers of the past.

AGES: 16+

PREREQUISITES:
Students must be able to warp a loom and weave independently.
