Textile Classes at Byrdcliffe

In 1906, Ralph Whitehead failed to secure a textile internship in England under William Morris. The co-founder of the Byrdcliffe Colony, one of the oldest ongoing arts and crafts colonies in America, Whitehead decided to build the Loom Room in the White Pines building to create his own hand-woven naturally dyed silk tapestries. In honor of Whitehead and the colony's historical significance, clothing and textile designer Isabel Wilson (Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Phillip Lim) is teaching a series of hand-weaving, dyeing, and surface design classes at the historic Loom Room throughout May and June. Each weekly class is three-hours long and continues for four weeks. (845) 679-2079; Woodstockguild.org
