What you'll do

Ever wonder how cloth is made? Like in the old days? Join me for a full tour of my weaving studio and discover the world of a working craftsperson. We'll explore all the hows and whys of the equipment including a giant mechanical production loom. I will demonstrate how each of the elements work and offer opportunities for guests to try them firsthand. We'll also compare different fibers in different stages of usability and learn a bit about how yarn is made. Guests will take home a small piece of weaving to remember their experience.
