October 14, 2016 at the Olgebay Mansion Museum from 9-3
Workshop leaders Fawn Valentine and Toni Ogden will demonstrate their methods for discovering what pieced or woven textiles can tell us, information that allows for interpretation beyond the obvious visual appeal of these bed coverings. Even without a maker’s name or date of construction, there are clues in fabric and fiber to guide curators, conservators, and textile-lovers to add to the history of the item and the story it has to tell.
$10.00 for WVAM members
