The first session of this course for those 50 and over will help to revive memories of simpler times when laundry was always hung to dry outdoors -- when folks went “online” without the Internet! There will be washday history, sociological issues of ethnic stereotypes in the laundry industry, the role of feminism, industrialization, culture, and ecology. Instructor Anne Lawrence will share laundry poetry, personal stories, and the opportunity to consider the clothesline in ways never before appreciated. The second session will illustrate how artists and photographers have captured the beauty of the clothesline in a wide variety of ways, and how the routine of hanging laundry out to dry sets minds free to create.

Instructor Lawrence has been a clothesline historian and hobbyist for over 30 years.
