A Wheat Weaving Demonstration will be held in the Steeple Building Aug 12, 11 am-5pm and Aug 13, noon-4 pm. Members of the Illinois Association of Wheat Weavers will answer questions and demonstrate plaiting techniques used to transform wheat straw into delicate works of art. Walk-ins are welcome to try wheat weaving techniques, guided by experienced members of the IAWW. Recent works will be displayed and available to purchase.
The IAWW seeks to further develop the craft, teach future generations of its heritage, and build a bond with wheat weavers throughout the world. Membership in the IAWW is open to all! Sign up at the show or call 217-732-1957 for more info about the IAWW.
