From Fleece to Cloth—Shearing, Spinning, and Weaving
Witness a living tradition, dating back thousands of years, Sunday, April 30, at Durand-Hedden
April 2017 – Spinning—twisting a fiber such as wool into thread or yarn—and weaving that thread or yarn to create cloth is an art and a craft dating back thousands of years. On April 30 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., Durand-Hedden visitors will be given the opportunity to explore this tradition and witness how cloth is made, from shearing sheep to spinning thread to weaving into cloth.
The event is free. Donations are appreciated.
