About this event

This interactive workshop engages all in the domestic art of fiber spinning. Instructor Celeste Sherry dresses as a middle-class woman of the late 1700s in accurately researched garments as she describes and demonstrates the historical development of wool & flax spinning on the spinning wheel & drop spindles. Participants will make their own drop spindles and learn how to spin wool into yarn; they will go home with a wooden drop spindle, printed instructions, and a small supply of wool fiber.
