Handwoven Bookmark Take & Create Art Kits

Mountain Iron, MN, October 18, 2023 – The Arrowhead Library System (ALS) will be providing Handwoven Take & Create Art Kits to member public libraries to distribute November 1-30, 2023. This art experience has been designed by Minnesota artist Erika LeMay, for beginners to explore the art of handweaving. Take & Create Art Kits will include all supplies needed for the Handwo­ven Bookmark project: a wooden beginner loom, tapestry needle, two mini skeins of yarn, scissors, and an instructional printout. A video tutorial will be shared online for participants.

“These kits are a wonderful introduction to one of the oldest crafts in history,” said Le­May. “My hope is to share this skill with others and instill the sense that it is more than just weaving, it’s about what we discover in the process and the experiences that are in­fused in the fibers.”

“We are absolutely delighted to be working with Erika and to offer a new art experience for regional patrons,” said Mollie Stanford, ALS Regional Librarian.

This program is geared towards those ages 8 and up, as younger kids may need assistance. Please note, each location has a limit­ed number of kits. Kits will be distributed at the following public libraries and ALS out­reach locations:

Duluth Public Library

Ely Public Library

Grand Marais Public Library

Silver Bay Public Library

Two Harbors Public Library

Arrowhead Library System Bookmobile

Arrowhead Library System Mail-A-Book (*patrons must qualify for Mail-A-Book services, kit may be modified in order to deliver by mail)

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Li­brary System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cul­tural Heritage Fund. To learn more about ALS Legacy Events, visit www.alslib.info  or like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/alslibinfo.
