Course Description

Have you ever had the pleasure of working with or simply wearing an exquisite natural fabric, such as buttery smooth silk charmeuse, or a crisp linen weave, and wondered how this incredible product of nature came to be in your hands, let alone the hands of humans for thousands of years? Join Reed McLaren, the "Garment Goddess", as we explore the origin and discuss the characteristics of three ancient textiles: linen, cashmere and silk, and how to care for them in our modern day world. Open to all levels!
