A View of Micronesian Weavings
Making your own Marshalles' Ball
A slide presentation will take you to the islands of Micronesia, where you will view handwoven items made from palm and pandanus fronds. Then you will have a chance to weave your own Marshalles ball, one of the numerous "how to" items from Leslie's book- Creative Hands--Handicrafts of Micronesia. Other directions available are for a fan, star, flower and the knot used to create the patterns in the Trukese mats.
