Visual Arts – Fiber Artist

770-330-5356 •

Peg McDade’s residency for teachers and students, 4th through 12th grades, offers opportunity to engage in the fiber arts. Peg presents techniques of handweaving, stitchery and finishing processes. Students design a fiber work, manipulating a wide range of plants/animal fibers or found objects. Resulting artworks may become a collaborative or treasured individual work. Peg provides simple looms. With NEIU 19/PCA support, benefitting schools are: Abington Heights, Delaware Valley Middle School, Forest City Regional Intermediate, Mountain View, Old Forge Middle School, Saint Jude Mountaintop, and Scranton High School.


The Scranton Cultural Center/New York Life underwrote a wall piece installed at Northeast Intermediate, Scranton. NEIU 19/PCA-AIE, community participants, age twelve through seniors, wove a large fiber work installed in the main stairwell of Waverly Community House.
