Weave for a Day and Go Home with a Scarf!

How is fabric actually made? Hand weaving was widely practiced by people of all ages, men, women, and children, and people made much of their own cloth for home use prior to 1800. If you are curious and interested in learning how to weave on a rigid heddle loom, come join us at the Sharon Historical Society for a full day workshop in which you will learn to warp, weave, and finish your very own winter wool scarf. All materials, looms, and equipment will be provided by Anne Cameron.

The fee of $175 is payable to Anne Cameron on the day of the class, and 30% will be donated to the Sharon Historical Society & Museum (SHSM). The class will be held in the SHSM reading room, 18 Main ST, Sharon CT 06069. Please bring a lunch and personal beverages. Please wear a mask. Since this is an extended indoor class, we ask that all participants verify they have been fully vaccinated prior to registering for the class. This is for the safety of museum patrons and staff.

Registration required. Limited to 5 participants.
