ECO Weavers

Join in Sunday, May 15, from 2:30-3:30 p.m. in an art project called Eco Weavers. It is called that because it intertwines re-purposed materials (ECO) on looms (weavers) made from gardening fence. Each participant makes two squares. One is a make-and-take for the young artist to take home. The second square is donated to the Iowa Arboretum. Staff here will assemble and interweave these donated pieces to create a huge outdoor mural for the children’s garden. Any age visitor, from toddler to teen, can be an ECO Weaver. All the ECO Weaver family events are free. No registration required.
