Weathering the Elements

This event has passed.

Keeping dry in rainy weather has been the impetus for a range of innovations, including waxed cotton, woven cedar, and modern textile technologies that provide waterproofing and breathability.

Join us for a series of presentations illuminating this aspect of Seattle’s weather-driven history.

At 1 pm, historian Colin Berg reflects on the rise of Eddie Bauer and the history of Seattle’s outdoor industries. At 2 pm, Tanya Knannlein, Instructor at the School of Apparel Design & Development, demonstrates the technology behind our modern waterproof gear.

Want to get hands-on? Check out our outdoor Weathering the Elements: Demonstrations in the Park program on the Boeing Centennial Terrace from 11 am to 3 pm.
