Year of the Sheep Collaborative Weaving on Display

Year of the Sheep
Collaborative Community Weaving

In honor of the Chinese New Year, all students, faculty, and staff of Bay View Academy participated in a collaborative weaving.  Using a large loom, each member of the Bay View community selected yarn or ribbon to weave into the tapestry.  Weaving collectively and weaving on a large scale was a novel experience for everyone… Participants were very selective in choosing their representative yarn, intuitively understanding that their choice reflected some aspect of themselves.  The Bay View family was excited to contribute to this project, creating a tangible expression of our beloved community.

This beauty is on display in the Main Office area!
