  • Wheat Weaving - Linda Beiler

Description

Master weaver Linda Beiler helps students explore the history, technique, and art of wheat weaving around the world. A member of the PA Guild of Craftsmen, Linda reveals how contemporary straw artists have turned an ancient craft into a unique art form. Students learn how to work with wheat, and work on individual and group projects.

The sphere pictured above was made by grades 1 & 2 at a school. They made paper from wheat straw and cut the handmade paper into shapes, which they then skewered and assembled into this sphere. The sphere is permanently installed in one of their stairwells.
