Wild weaving at Hunt
FALLS VILLAGE — An enthusiastic group of children learned how to weave on a v-shaped, maple branch frame with yarn, flowers and other natural materials at the David M. Hunt Library on Saturday, Sept. 9.
Jean Bronson, assisted by her daughter Emily Bronson, showed the children how to make a web of yarn between the two sides of the “v” and then work the natural materials into them.
Gradually, the creations took shape, as the Bronsons moved from child to child offering a tip here, a suggestion there.
Bronson interspersed her suggestions with concise explanations of the materials, such as marigolds and “old man’s beard.”
The finished products were hard to distinguish from the completed examples Bronson brought.
