2023-02-04 – The Living Archive: Examining and Reimagining Heirloom Heddles (Online)
February 4 (1:00-2:00 pm CT)
This is an online class hosted on Zoom.
Join celebrated Swedish carver and weaver Kerstin Neumüller as she examines heddles from Vesterheim's collection! Used in bandweaving, heddles were often carved by men as a courting gift for women. Because of this, many historic heddles are ornately decorated with everything from hearts to dates to initials. Throughout the discussion of Vesterheim's collection of heddles, Kerstin will also share about her relationship with traditional handcraft in contemporary Scandinavia.
