About the Marshfield School of WeavingThe Marshfield School of Weaving is the nation's foremost school for textile techniques as used in 18th-century Britain and early America. Our instruction is founded on efficient, practical methods rooted in a tradition that reaches back to medieval England. Gathered in a 19th-century barn, overlooking the hills of Central Vermont, is the largest collection of working 18th- and 19th-century hand looms in the country. Beginning and advanced students set the pace and direction of their learning experience in classes that range from a few days to several weeks.
The Marshfield School of Weaving was founded in 1974 by Norman Kennedy who learned his trade from the last of the professional hand weavers in Aberdeen, Scotland following the Second World War. Kate Smith, who began her instruction under Norman in 1979, currently runs the school and teaches with a variety of instructors. To learn more about the school Click Here
