About the event

The creation of silk textiles – from caterpillar to cloth – is a  fascinating journey. Learn how silk is transformed from simple “bug  spit” into shimmering elegance. Silk specialist Katrina Walker will  guide you through the process of growing and processing silk in this  interactive lecture/demo. Learn all about silk, including how to reel  your own silk from cocoons and even how silk “hankies” are made using  whole cocoons and a frame. Join us for an unforgettable textile  experience. (It will bring out the "Fabric Nerd" in all of us!)

**Can't  make it for these dates/times? If this date doesn't work for you, we  will be recording the session so you can watch on your own time.   Recordings will be available for at least two weeks after class ends.**
