COMMUNITY WEAVING / stockmarket 05/20/17
Completed community weaving from last Saturday's STOCKMARKET!
THANK YOU to everyone that contributed and made this #weaving possible. So many wonderful people stopped by and added to this piece. Tons of brand new #weavers! MVP award goes to my main man Mateo (only 7 years old!) from #bobastop for not only learning how to #weave in about 5 minutes, but for completing about half of this entire piece. He made a point to use every material in the baskets I brought. He is a natural-born #weaver and spent most of the afternoon at the loom weaving and sharing his insights into the process with me. Such a beautiful reminder of a beautiful day.
This past Saturday's STOCKMARKET in Caldwell Park was great! I met so many wonderful people and shared the art of weaving with everyone that stopped by the booth.
We had a large frame loom set up for the community to come weave on and the results were incredible (see above for details). So many people sat down at a loom for the first time that day... and some even became new weavers. I brought a wide array of materials for people to experiment with and I love the wildness of the completed piece.
Once again, thank you to everyone that stopped by and contributed to this crazy thing... I LOVE IT! Until next time...
