Building a Loom with Upcycled Material: A Virtual Seminar for Military Veterans

Are you raising animals or growing plants for fiber? Have you considered making value added products using wool or other fibers? It is often assumed that weaving takes an incredible amount of space and money. Well, Sarah Gotowka is here to show you that anyone can weave easily and resourcefully from their own home! Join us virtually on February 4, 2023 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to learn how to weave using upcycled materials such as cardboard and old t-shirts. We will begin by looking at a wide array of woven cloth from different parts of the world, and then dive into weaving techniques of our own!

Veterans must reside in New York State or New Jersey to register.

If you are retired from Cornell University or Cooperative Extension, please select your former appointment.
NOTE: The social definition of “race” has resulted in systemic institutional racism and made it more challenging for people of color to farm. We ask this question as one measure toward our goal of supporting ALL people who farm or want to farm. You can read more about this commitment in our Equity and Justice Statement on our About page.
