  • Artist Weaves Tale for Students

    Fiber artist Susan Barrett Merrill spent the whole day March 27 as an artist in residence at the Islesford School. Susan gave a slideshow on fiber history in the morning including a photograph of a 2,500-year-old saddle and rug that is thought to be the oldest example fiber art. Everyone learned about spinning and weaving, and made looms from notebook binders. The younger class made friendship bracelets and the older class made belts with power symbols, similar to those found in cultures throughout the world. Susan plans to return in May to help the students build an earth loom.
