TRADITION • INTEGRITY • INGENUITY
The Marshfield School of Weaving is the nation’s foremost school for textile techniques as practiced in 18th-century Britain and early America. The instruction is founded on efficient, practical methods rooted in a tradition that reaches back to medieval England. Gathered in a 19th-century barn, overlooking the hills of central Vermont, is the largest collection of working 18th and 19th-century looms in the country.
