Spinning & Weaving Cotton in the Acadian Tradition with Austin Clark

Spinning & Weaving Cotton in the Acadian Tradition with Austin Clark

In this five day workshop, students will learn about the Acadian cotton textile tradition in Louisiana. We will work with different colors of natural cotton and learn to card and spin, on both the great wheel and low wheel, as it has been done in Louisiana for 250 years. Students will also weave a sampler covering the variety of Acadian textiles from cotonnade fabrics and household linens to the ubiquitous Acadian brown cotton blanket.
