Try your hand at weaving in this 2-hr class for all levels of experience. You will learn some of the history behind weaving in Williamsburg at the time of the Revolution to spark your patriotic homespun spirit. This class is taught on pre-warped modern looms, on which you will be able to pass the shuttle back-and-forth to build up a cotton tea towel to take home. All the necessary supplies will be provided in this workshop, including care instructions for your handwoven towel.
