This Week's Program:

This program will be a laid back, casual, outdoor art circle.  We will be creating our own looms out of sticks, and weaving only with natural materials found in your backyard or garden!  To reduce our impact on conservation land, and to further personalize your project, we ask that you bring the materials you want to weave with, preferably from your garden or yard, not a trail or other natural areas.  The SLA will have extra filler materials such as pine needles and grasses, as well as supplies to create the loom frame.  Participants should bring the colors and textures they would like to make up the bulk of their weaving with.  No weaving experience necessary! 

 

What to Bring: Bring any natural materials (think flowers, small pinecones, moss, etc.) from your garden that you would like to use in your weaving project.

Audience: This program is for adults and children 12 and up.  

This Week's LRCC Guides: 

Hey there!  I'm Maggy, from Long Island, New York and recently graduated from Hofstra University with a degree in Sustainability Sciences.  I used to train assistance dogs to help people with disabilities become more independent in their daily lives which sparked my love for animals.   After hearing Steve Irwin's voice in the back of my head telling me to go a little further, I soon nudged myself into pursuing a career in the environmental sciences and became very interested in wildlife and conservation.  The Squam Lakes Region has always had a special place in my heart as it is my childhood vacation spot; I can't wait to be doing my part in making sure it remains healthy and beautiful.  I'm excited for all of the great experiences this year is going to bring, to further explore New Hampshire, and learn as much as I can about how to protect and maintain our awesome planet.  I love going out to spot wildlife, watch meteor showers, or finding great views!
