Naturally dyed textiles by resident artist Patricia Kessler

Natural Dye Workshop 1 – Plant Dyes Sourced from the Kitchen

July 14, 2019

10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Transforming Textiles Sustainably with Resident Artist, Patricia Powell Kessler

Museum Member: $90, Non-Member: $100
Materials Fee: $30 paid direct to artist

Beginners and experienced artists will discover sustainable (and safe) sources of color for creating a natural palette with supplies sourced from common kitchen items.

The workshop will begin with an overview of how to prepare textiles.  Mordants and the requirements for dyeing silk, linen, cotton and wool will be discussed and demonstrated.  Both hot and cold dye baths will be created using easily available foods such as avocado, onion skins, turmeric, berries, and annatto seeds.

Participants will be given packets of silk, cotton, and linen cloth, some wool yarn and a silk scarf that have been prepared for dyeing.  Then the fun begins as we dive into the dye pots. Using folding techniques or tie dye the silk scarves will be transformed with surprising results.  Printed directions for preparing dyes and mordanting cloth, a bibliography and supply sources will be given to each participant for future reference.

This workshop will be held at the museum in Patricia’s ground floor studio in the Bank Barn. One-hour lunch break from 12:30 until 1:30 pm.  Attendees are invited to eat bagged lunches on the Museum grounds or visit a nearby restaurant or cafes.

Bring a pair of long kitchen gloves. Wear closed toed shoes and an apron or clothing that you won’t mind staining.

History Happy Hour: The Women of the 6888th Central Postal Battalion

July 19, 2019

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In February 1945, a massive backlog of letters and packages intended for U.S. troops, government, and civilian personnel serving in Europe, was being held in airplane hangars and warehouses in England and France. As troop movements and incomplete addresses brought mail delivery to a standstill, morale began to decline. But who would tackle the enormous project? The 6888th Battalion, nick-named the “Six Triple Eight,” was a unit of African-American women who braved dark, freezing, and rat-infested warehouses, working around the clock to create a tracking system and get the mail to its recipients. Led by Major Charity Adams, the women maintained their dignity and professionalism while enduring segregation and the resentment of male service personnel.

Join us for the compelling story of the perseverance and success of the women of the 6888th Battalion, invisible heroes whose service was finally recognized in the 1990s by the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum, the U.S. Army Commendation Program, and other institutions.

The program begins with film clips from “The Six Triple Eight” directed by James Theres, and continues with a panel discussion with the director, producers Lizz Helm-Frazier and Edna Cummings, and Stanley Earley, the son of battalion commander Major Charity Adams.

This History Happy Hour is free of charge. A cash bar will be available. History Happy Hours are sponsored by Therrien Waddell Construction Group.

The boundaries of warfare changed forever with the first successful gas attack by German forces in World War I. Chlorine gas, at first thought to be a simple smoke screen to hide attacking soldiers, had a devastating effect on its victims. Allied nations quickly responded to this new type of warfare from the Central Powers nations. In the U.S., the War Department created the Chemical Warfare Service to harness companies of engineers-turned-soldiers, eventually known as the Hellfire Boys. Their development of mustard gas and other asphyxiates, delivered in artillery shells, produced more reliable ways of inflicting casualties on the enemy troops. Putting aside conscience and conventions, the U.S. plunged into chemical warfare with the convoluted logic that if combat became so terrible, wars would stop. Join us to hear the story of the marriage between science and industry, and the real characters guiding these new terrors of war making, as told by Theo Emery.

Journalist Theo Emery has reported on U.S. city and state governments from north to south, and the events of 9/11. His articles have been published in the Boston Globe, The New York Times, and the Associated Press. Hellfire Boys is his first book.

History Happy Hours include happy hour drinks and snacks.  History Happy Hours are sponsored by Therrien Waddell Construction Group.

Naturally dyed textiles by resident artist Patricia Kessler

Two-Day Natural Dye Workshop: Bundle Dying and Indigo

September 21, 2019

10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Transforming Textiles Sustainably with Resident Artist, Patricia Powell Kessler

Museum Member: $190, Non-Member: $225
Materials Fee: $50 paid direct to artist

On Day One, beginners and experienced artists will find safe sources of color and pattern from materials locally sourced in woods, fields and gardens.  We will begin with an overview of how to prepare textiles for the dye process.  Mordants including soy and the requirements for dyeing silk and wool will be discussed and demonstrated. Participants will make dye pots.

Bundle dying or eco-dying techniques will enable everyone to discover the variety of colors naturally occurring in plant materials. Wrapping selected items tightly and immersing them in a heated bath allows them to transfer onto the silk and wool fabric.

Day Two is devoted to indigo!  A vat of this universal color will be made by using only non-toxic methods.  Several methods of pattern making including resist will be demonstrated to be used with this wonderful blue.  It requires no mordant is especially suited to cotton.

Participants will be given packets of silk, cotton, and wool cloth, and two silk scarves.  Printed directions for preparing dyes and mordanting cloth, a bibliography and supply sources will be given to each participant for future reference.

This workshop will be held in Patricia’s ground floor studio in the Bank Barn from 10 am until 4 pm with a one-hour lunch break from 12:30 until 1:30 pm. Participants are invited to eat bagged lunches on the Museum grounds or visit the restaurants and cafes nearby.

Bring a pair of long kitchen gloves. Wear closed toed shoes and an apron or clothing that you won’t mind staining.

History Happy Hour: Code Girls

December 6, 2019

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Admission Fee: $20
Members are invited to attend a private reception with Liza Mundy preceding the event at 6pm.

In 1940s and 1950s, most women, even well-educated ones, were encouraged not to have careers, and could not get decent jobs. Except, that is, those who went to Washington, DC to become code breakers in WWII. Working 12-hour, 7-day work weeks in steamy offices with endless lists of numbers and letters, thousands of schoolteachers recruited by the American Army broke the codes that encrypted German and Japanese messages, and helped to win the Second World War. This mission was so top secret that practically no one knew about the work, yet it had far-reaching consequences for today’s expanding field of cyber security, and data network protection and attack. Code Girls looks at the personal stories of individual women, and the social changes that took place as America went to war.

Liza Mundy brings thorough research and details together in her the fascinating, behind-the-scenes story, Code Girls. Mundy is a journalist and non-fiction writer. She is the author of books on feminist topics, and New York Times bestseller, Michelle, a biography of First Lady Michelle Obama.

History Happy Hours include happy hour drinks and snacks.  History Happy Hours are sponsored by Therrien Waddell Construction Group.
