- Program Description
A holiday visit to Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, VA, for a look at an 18th Century Colonial Christmas.
Lucinda Mays displays seasonal wreaths and decorations with Libby Oliver, Manager of Floral Services. Together, they create a fruit tree. They "pin" various fruits onto a cone-shaped wooden pyramid spiked with nails. They use fresh apples, kumquats, lemons, oranges, grapes, clipped boxwood, topped with a miniature pineapple. The base is skirted with layers of magnolia leaves. Display in a cool, dry place and it should last about 7 days.
Jim Wilson visits a weaver's shop with weaver Marilyn Wetton who is spinning cotton. Max Hamrick talks about natural dyes and demonstrates the loom.
Roger Swain tours the Abby Aldrich Rockefellar Folk Art Center with Director Carolyn Weekley to view antique children's toys and doll houses.
Holly Shimizu views the geometric gardens behind the Governor's Palace, with formal evergreen topiaries, clipped boxwood, etc. highlighted beautifully in the snow. We see beech trees that have been "pleached" or woven into a "living tunnel."
