As the last of the grain crops were gathered in, farmworkers used to weave decorative items as a symbol of continuing prosperity on the land. Make a harvest sheaf from braided raffia or grasses in honor of the tradition. Decorate it with mixed bunches of grasses, seed heads, nuts, and other natural things with different textures. Tie the top with fall ribbon and hang on a door, pillar, or post as a reminder of the golden days of the season. Pre-registration is required; meet in the Salt Wing.
Ages: adults & children 12 & up; fee: $5 per person.
