As the chill of November settles over Vermont, we warmly invite you to join us for an educational and engaging hands-on afternoon with Justin Squizzero from the Burroughs Garret in Newbury, Vermont. Justin creates handspun, naturally-dyed, hand-woven textiles using methods and equipment from the 18th and 19th century. In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of natural dyeing using plants, minerals, and insects. Participants will take home samples of dyed textiles.

Light refreshments and discussion will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m.

Registration Fee: $10 per person, Free for VHS members

Please register online before Wednesday, November 6th, 2019 to reserve your place in this workshop.

We look forward to seeing you there!
