Join Spin a Yarn, Weave a Life at our interactive station at this year’s Cambridge Folklife area, located by the Weeks pedestrian footbridge. Learn the ancient Japanese art of shifu paper spinning and make your contribution to our ongoing community weaving project. Textiles continue to reinforce the cultural fabric of families, communities, and trades across generations, both locally and around the world. Cambridge Folklife’s “Weaving Community” theme at this year’s River Festival explores the many forms in many cultures that textiles can take, and focuses on their care and conservation so today’s textiles can become tomorrow’s heirlooms. Find us at the Weeks Footbridge. Full brochure downloadable here.
