Spinning wheel and loom training at Fort Bend County Museum
Fort Bend County Museum is offering a special 5-week training course in old-fashioned textile techniques on the spinning wheel and loom. Classes begin on Tuesday, January 28.
“This is a rare chance to learn a historic craft that was once an everyday skill passed down through the years, typically from mothers to daughters. A class like this is just one of the ways the Fort Bend County Museum keeps our local history alive for generations to come,” said Jessica Avery, Education Coordinator.
Originally designed to prepare volunteers for giving loom and spinning wheel demonstrations at the Museum, this class is also open to the general public for $25 per participant. Members of the Fort Bend County Museum Association may attend free of charge.
Spinning wheel and loom training classes will be held 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. every Tuesday, January 28 through February 25. For more information or to RSVP call (281) 342-6478 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
