On Saturday, November 12, the Celtic Studies Program, St. Michael’s College, University of Toronto and the Canadian Celtic Arts Association present Deborah Livingston-Lowe (M.A. student in History, University of Guelph):
"Scottish Weaver John Campbell: Life and Loom in Ontario"
Scottish born weaver, John Campbell immigrated to North America in the 1830s as a trained, professional weaver. Campbell wove a variety of products including the most complex of Ontario hand woven textiles, the figured coverlet. His figured or Jacquard head loom was found intact in the 1950s in his London, Ontario home. The loom is currently in the Ontario Science Centre where volunteers demonstrate how it works.
The talk takes place at Madden Hall, Carr Hall, 100 St. Joseph Street (just south of Museum Station / paid parking across the road) in Toronto.
