Sometimes When You Least Expect It -

you find some cool weaving.


We were at the Rye Public Library the other day, and saw this wonderful woven piece by Sarah Haskell and the 5th graders from Rye Elementary School.


This project must have been a lot of fun!


Zoomed in a bit so you can see the weaving and figures.


If you're in Rye, NH, this weaving is downstairs in a meeting room in the library. Too cool!

Pretty darn neat you finding that and what a glorious piece! The kids must have had blast working with Sarah on that.

That is SO cool!!! I love the little people stitched on - they almost look like trouble dolls.

I do love this weaving!! I'm figuring out some weaving to do with my nieces at the beach this summer....and I'm mentally far down a different path.

But it would be really fun to make a small version of something like this!!

We'll see!

It must have been a lot of fun to the kids, and the result is fantastic. I wish more kids could get the chance to do something like that. To weave with your nieces sounds like a great idea.

Hey Sue:

Thank you for highlighting this work with the Rye 5th graders! I have yet to get to the library to see it installed...so you made my day!! Working with kids has taught me more about myself and the art of weaving than I ever thought possible. Lessons loom LARGE! Sarah

Sarah,

As you can see from the comments here, so many of us admire your work!!

It's great that you come up with so many ways to share weaving with so many people!!
