Presenters who have a special interest in their chosen topic will share their stories and expertise with participants. This program is for adults. Students ages 12-18 must have parental supervision.

April will feature Campus Martius’s loom and spinning resources as participants learn the basics of weaving and take a turn at one of our multi-warped looms. Guests will learn about the evolution of the loom and get first-hand experience as they create their own “mug-rug” with provided hand looms.
