Rock Day/Distaff Day, Tuesday, January 7 from 11-3 pm
January 7 at 11:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
In Medieval days, Rock Day or Distaff’s Day was the traditional day for women to resume their spinning following the Christmas celebrations. Come sit around the fireplace and watch as spinners from our community use a variety of spindles, wheels and methods to turn fleece into fiber. There will be a demonstration at 12 noon and a chance to try out some of the wheels yourself!
All spinners welcome to join in!
