Westerville’s Starry Night is a great engagement opportunity for students, young and old!

Guild members Linda Hall and Sue Briney organized the Guild demonstration for Westerville’s Starry Night Family Learning Festival.

Sue and I had a grand time with wonderful guild members. Parents & grandparents were engaged & the students were curious & engaged.  Everyone was very appreciative of our guild’s participation. One member brought her wheel & a sheep that baas when turned over. Just great fun.

Students had the opportunity to try weaving on tapestry floor looms, flat looms, and table looms.  We also had a spinning demonstration and examples of all sorts of textile art!

This event had close to 2000 participants and great engagement at our booth!

Thanks to Starry Night for having us back again this year – we hope to return! For more information on Starry Night: Art & Science Fueling Imagination, please click here.

Thanks to our Guild member volunteer demonstrators as well! As you can see from the pictures below, demonstrations are an involved endeavor, requiring coordination and legwork to get the equipment and materials into the space! These demonstrations are a vital part of our mission to share the fiber arts with those who aren’t currently involved.
