Colonial Life of Women Series: Weaving Thru History and Over & Under - The Art of Weaving (POSTP


The Glebe House Museum will continue its “Colonial Life Series” focusing on the Colonial Life of Women. This series is presented with the help of a grant received from the “Women’s Giving Circle of the Connecticut Community Foundation”. The Colonial Life Series was designed to present the “lost” arts of colonial life, in an intimate setting, at our historic site. Immerse yourself in history in these programs based on the important contributions of women during the colonial period that affected not only their immediate household, but their local community and beyond.

This six-part series has already presented lectures & hands on workshops including the life of colonial women, herbalism basics, painting theorems, and vinegar etched framing.

The closing two programs will include: colonial textiles and the basics of hand-weaving.
