As should be apparent from the multitude of recent blog posts, our freshman seminar course FSEM 180 Human Survival: Learning from the Past is going strong for the second semester in a row. We’ve been lucky enough to learn from local experts in ancient fabric arts (spinning, dyeing, and weaving). We’re grateful to Theresa, Ercil, Debbie, and Bjo for these informative and interesting lessons!

Griffin Dyeworks & Fabric Arts has published a blog post about these lessons. You can check it out here:

Keep checking back for updates from the students. It’s been an exciting semester so far, and we haven’t even gotten to mudbricks, oil lamps, and rock art yet!
