Join us for an evening with Rabbit Goody, an internationally-known textile researcher, lecturer and teacher, who will give a short, informal talk on the 19th-century arts & crafts aesthetic.
- Wine and light bites will be served before the program.
This program will be held in Theodate Pope’s former home at 13 High Street, Farmington.
While the 18th-century saltbox cottage has changed significantly over the years of private ownership, photos from the 1890s will be on display to show how it looked in Theodate’s day.
