Lonaconing Silk Mill (Klotz Throwing Company) ***NEW*** Join us for this special workshop at the Lonaconing Silk Mill (also known as The Klotz Throwing Company) to capture wonderful images from times past. It is one of the last remaining intact silk mills in the United States. This 52,000 square foot facility located in Lonaconing, MD was opened in 1907 and produced silk and rayon until a labor dispute caused it closing in 1957. Almost everything is still intact since it’s closed 64 years ago including all the machinery, looms, spools, tools, and artifacts from the past and many of the employees’ personal belongings. This place is an absolute treasure trove for photographers seeking to capture images of the past.


NOTE: 7/30/22 ONLY- Time is 10 - 12:30 PM ; all other dates 9 AM to 11:30 AM
Fee: $179.00
