(111) 18th Century Household Textiles

2021-Workshops - Dunning-18th-C-1In the 18th century, domestic handweavers produced a wide variety of fabric from their rustic looms for clothing, bed coverings, toweling and table linens. Modern weavers will be inspired as we explore two private antique textile collections to see samples of garments, cotton toweling, linen napery (tablecloths and napkins), linsey-woolsey, overshot, Venetian carpeting, and wool blanketing.
