Between April 4 and  June 24, Prince Edward County Elementary School’s wonderfully patterned and dazzlingly colorful Main Street Window installation focused on weaving. In the process of making this display, the approximately 1050 students in Cricket Edmonson’s and Joy Utzinger’s art classes participated in many group and individual projects involving weaving and fiber-related processes. Students used large freestanding looms to weave rag rugs and wall hangings using fabric, found items, and recyclable materials.
