A children's weaving class hosted by betterArts is slated for 12 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, at Better Farm in Redwood.

Children of all ages are invited to this two-hour class to learn different types of weaving. Students will acquire basic weaving knowledge, gain hands-on experience, and discuss basic weaving vocabulary. Students may additionally bring old clothes, fabric, or yarn for their projects if they like.

The class is taught by local artist Alyssa Curley, a fiber-working expert. Curley earned a BA in Art Education from SUNY Potsdam.

Cost for the class is $5.

Email for more information or to pre-register. Students (and their parents!) are invited to stay afterward for Summerfest, betterArts' second music, art, and sustainability festival for the summer featuring activities for kids of all ages!
