    Event Description:
    Curious about spinning and weaving? Want to try it but think you need fancy equipment? Come and try simple hands on activities with us to learn the basics. Cut, weave and glue strips of paper to make a greeting card or a woven design to hang on the wall. Set up warp threads on a cardboard loom and weave with ribbon and yarn. Use a microscope to examine the difference between woven, knit, and felt materials. See how wool is spun into yarn and meet some of the artists who demonstrate their fiber crafts at the MN Discovery Center!
