Elsa Bouman, The Loom Lady
Help fund fiber arts and weaving classes in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park!

With ten looms in tow, the Loom Lady reaches school classes, small groups and individuals. In our high tech world, all people, especially children need hands-on learning. Weaving and all the fiber arts develop dexterity, creativity and connection with organic materials - a welcome relief from social media, technology and our plastic-laden culture.

Elsa Bouman, The Loom Lady, is the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council Fiber Artist in Residence. She is an accomplished artist and teacher with a passion for sharing the gift of fiber arts! She has worked with the Arts Council for six years to bring fiber arts to young people through the schools and summer arts camp.

Your donation allows Elsa to educate people of all ages in the fiber arts and weaving from grade school kids to seniors. Also essential to this project is the purchase of ten Ashford rigid heddle looms and yarns that serve as the foundation for Elsa's teaching. In addition to being part of the Artists in Schools program, Elsa will lead numerous community activities and appearances such as arts camps for teens and kids, as a featured presenter in the Fall 2015 Create and Make workshops, "Grab a Shuttle to The Loom Lady" drop-in sessions at the 2015 Shoreline Arts Festival, Summer Concerts, Shoreline and Lake Forest Park (LFP) Farmers Markets, Shoreline LFP Senior Center, LFP Garden Tour, and Third Place Commons.
