Another way to connect with CSAG is to visit us at one of our Make and Take events throughout the year. Members are available to assist visitors in making a small weaving, usually for free, so that you can get an idea of what is involved with wheat weaving, aka straw art. We usually have Make and Take opportunities at the following venues:
