Weaving History with Community: A Weaving Workshop

Georgetown School of the Arts founder, instructor, artist Susan Jackson is presenting an interactive workshop featuring a hands-on lesson in weaving and a brief history of weaving as a functional practice and art form at multiple locations throughout the area.

The slideshow portion of the presentation explores the history of weaving from the Native Americans to the Colonials and all the way to present day artists focusing on New England and Connecticut. The other portion of the presentation is hands on weaving for participants.

Susan has been a weaver for over 20 years and has taught weaving at the Georgetown School of the Arts for the last 8 years. Her enthusiasm for this art form is palpable and contagious.
