Sunday afternoon, February 21st from 1-4pm
A Textile Workshop
$20. per person.
Colleen Wilson, Museum Textile Conservator, will lead our first hands-on workshop of the year.
Colleen will demonstrate a traditional skill at which most of our grandmothers were highly adept. In recent decades, however, the art of “Darning” has all but disappeared as clothing and particularly the lowly sock have become much too quickly disposable.
Do you have a favourite sweater or colourful pair of socks that just need a little judicious stitching to give them a new lease on life? Then bring yourself and your threadbare old friend(s) along to the Villa on February 21st for a darning and mending tutorial. Learn a new (old) skill!
We will supply the yarn, the tea and the goodies.
Seating is limited.
Reservations are required.
Please reserve at: firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a fee of $20 per person.
