'The Art and History of Handwoven Textiles'

When: Jan. 18-Feb. 29 2016

Boasting the largest collection of functional 18th- and 19th-century handlooms in the country, the Marshfield School of Weaving is a textile lovers’ gem tucked away in central Vermont. Some of the school’s treasure is now on view at the Frog Hollow State Craft Center’s Church Street storefront — including an antique loom. Curated by Jerusha Fox, the exhibition includes a selection of historically accurate woven pieces as well as contemporary works, guaranteeing sensory pleasure for fiber geeks and novices alike.
