Handicraft 100 years ago

Year-round museum lesson

Our ancestors didn't write letters on paper, but wove them into mittens, bedspreads, and belts. In the lesson, we will give an overview of our ancestors' handicraft. We will pick and card wool and set the spinning wheel in motion. We'll explore how to obtain fibers from the flax plant and what can be done with them.

Connection with subjects: handicraft, crafts.

Up to 25 students
