The Woods Hole Historical Museum begins its 2015 Craft Workshop series, run in conjunction with the Woods Hole Public Library, with this first session. All are open to the public with only very small materials fees.

Students should wear old clothes or an apron, and bring tall dish gloves.  Please note, workshop may run for up to 3 hours to complete fabric preparation and dyeing.

$6 materials fee due at the workshop. Includes large ‘flour sack’ cotton tea towel, dye and all other materials.
