Learning About Textiles

Students in Grades 3, 4 and 5 enjoyed an in-school "field trip" on Friday, November 16 with a visit from Mrs. Kathy Hibour.  Mrs. Hibour curated many of the childrens' programs at the now (sadly) closed Lowell Textile Museum.  Mrs. Hibour, not to be deterred, has taken her show on the road.  In the photos above, students from Grades 3 and 5 (in blue) and Grade 4 (in yellow) learned from her about the process of making fabric from wool sheared from sheep.
