Community Circle Weaving Project

Sat 10 AM | Studio

Melissa Yoder Ricks

Join in the creation of a woven work of art – no experience necessary! Fiber Artist Melissa Yoder Ricks will guide as participants add their own personal touches to a community weaving using yarn, fiber, or found objects such as feathers or twigs. Fiber arts are good for the mind and soul, creating a mental open space for contemplation and meditation. Creating with natural materials by hand fosters harmony and connectedness to the created world and the creator. Sharing and encouraging creativity creates community.
