Hooked on Fiber Arts

On a recent FlexFriday visit, FlexSchool students were treated to a highly engaging hands-on fiber arts workshop!  FlexSchool's own Susan Hemingway brought her spinning wheel for a demonstration, as well as a variety of different fibers, tools and finished products. Students manipulated pieces of prepared fiber, called "roving," to see the effects of adding twist. Then it was time to try their hands at making their own fiber arts creations! Susan led a workshop on spinning with a drop spindle, while Bronxville art teacher Brianna Hooijberg led the knitting workshop.
