Connecting Threads

Published in: Events

 The Fortress of Louisbourg Association in partnership with Parks Canada presents Connecting Threads, a day-long event dedicated to women's domestic arts.

Connecting Threads offered four workshops, each one highlighting a traditional domestic craft that women of the 18th century Louisbourg were skilled in.
Workshops will be taught in Dyeing, Needlework/Embroidery, Spinning, and Knitting. Each workshop lasts five hpurs with a lunch break. The morning will begin with an orientation and talk on 18th century crafts followed by hands- on instruction in traditional techniques to produce an 18th century- style take- home project to finish. There will be an optional tour of the site for anyone interested in attending.
Connecting Threads celebrates the contributions of colonial woman whose practical creativity helped clothe her family and contribute to the household economy.
Tickets are $90 taxes in.
