Connecting Threads: In Association With Celtic Colours

 The Fortress Louisbourg Association and Parks Canada present Connecting Threads, a day-long event dedicated to women's domestic arts.

 Connecting Threads offers five workshops, each one highlighting a traditional domestic craft that women of 18th century Louisbourg were skilled in.

 Workshops will be taught in dyeing, needlework/embroidery, spinning, and knitting. Each workshop lasts five hours with a lunch break. Participants will receive a short orientation tour of the Fortress site followed by hands-on instruction in traditional techniques to produce an 18th century-style take-home project to finish.

 Connecting Threads celebrates the contributions of the colonial woman whose practical creativity helped to clothe her family and contribute to the household economy.

 Price: $90 tax included per participant (material and light lunch included)


Participant can register for one workshop only.
