The Work of the Karen Weavers’ Circle

November 9 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us at the East Side Freedom Library to view our weavers demonstrate traditional Karen back-strap weaving! If you have wanted to experience the weaving process, but never had a chance this is a great opportunity! There will be items available for purchase as well as refreshments.

In Burma/Myanmar women and men would weave intricately patterned cloth on backstrap looms, which would be used to make sarongs, shirts and other clothing. (Pioneer Press: Jean Pieri)

 

 

 

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
