    It can be difficult to access women’s viewpoints in Early North American history, but textiles, needlepoint, and recipe books provide unique insights. Two, back-to-back lectures, one interpreting samplers and the other exploring menstruation management, Wyck invites you to consider how women made masterful use of material culture to assert their opinions and to improve their experiences throughout history.

    This two-part program is suited for ages 10 to adult (all ages welcome to attend).
    $20; Friends of Wyck $15; Students under 25 $10
