Learn the methods of early weavers at area workshop

LERNA – The Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site is offering a unique, 5-day weaving workshop, “Plain and Fancy Weaves: Weaving Reproduction Fabrics on Antique Barn Frame Looms,” October 21-25.

The workshop is designed to showcase the many weaving options available to those who have antique barn farm looms, or those who have an interest in learning about weaving reproductions of late 18th and early 19th century fabrics.

Classes will focus on producing reproduction textiles while learning the tools, methods and terminology used by early weavers. Participants must have basic weaving skills to attend.

From striped grain bags, blankets and jean cloth to Venetian carpet and linsey-woolsey fabric, the workshop will teach students how to create samples using antique equipment that has been preserved or restored to working order.
