Hill-stead Museum events in March

Check out some fun and educational events at Hill-Stead Museum this month:

Hill-Stead is teaming up with Clatter Ridge Farm to host a wool extravaganza. The sheep will be shorn in the barns while fiber artists and vendors demonstrate skirting, carding, spinning, weaving, knitting, crocheting, felting, and more. There will be free hayrides to and from the barns, food vendors, and craft activities.
The Art of Shearing is not only appropriate for all ages, but it is also the perfect way to welcome Spring. Learn what it takes to create something “from sheep to shawl” on Sunday, March 26 from 10 am to 1 pm. Tickets are $20 per carload or $10 for adults and $5 for Children 12 & under. Click here for tickets.

If you have had the chance to visit the exhibition Alfred Pope: An Evolution of Ingenuity, and have questions about how the museum curators tracked down the artworks, developed the concept, or researched and produced the catalogue, this is the event for you!
Dr. Anna Swinbourne, Executive Director and CEO; Melanie Bourbeau, Senior Curator; and Ana Alvarez, Curatorial Assistant, will discuss their experience organizing the exhibition, share insider anecdotes and answer any questions you haven’t yet had the chance to ask.
The panel will take place on Thursday, March 30 at 5:30pm. The cost of $40 pp for members and $45 pp for non-members. 

Hill-Stead Museum is at 35 Mountain Road, Farmington. Go to HILLSTEAD.ORG for more information.
