Sitting high on a hill overlooking downtown Baltimore, Mount Clare Museum House in Carroll Park located at 1500 Washington Boulevard was built by Charles Carroll, Barrister in 1760 as a part of a 1,000 acre colonial agricultural-industrial complex.

Come learn about wool, fiber processing, and spin wool yourself on a drop spindle in the quaint setting of Mount Clare’s kitchen. The price includes a drop spindle you can take home, wool roving, and a tour of Mount Clare.

This workshop is great for any beginners 12 and older with an interest in crafting, knitting, crocheting, and fibers.  Limited to 10 guests.
