Take a quick trip through time with fiber artist Donna Kallner, who puts a new spin on looping. This ancient family of techniques, known by many different names on six of the seven continents, includes everything from fishing nets and string bags to fine needle lace. View samples of looping from the Museum's collection, handle pieces from Donna's own sample case, and learn to twist and ply cordage with plant fibers like you might find growing in your own yard.
