The Beauty of Indiana Folk Arts: Visiting Folk Artists Series–Larry Haycraft (hoop-net maker)

10:30 am to 04:00 pm
Mathers Museum of World Cultures

Five generations of the Haycraft family have made hoop nets and fished the rivers of southern Indiana. As a child, Larry Haycraft learned the basics of the craft from his father, and is now teaching his son and daughter to make nets. He believes it is important for them to learn not only for the survival of the craft, but also for their own development, since net making teaches them patience and careful, deliberate thinking. Learn more about hoop-net making during Haycraft’s demonstrations and narrative stage discussion. The events will be free and open to the public, and are sponsored by Themester 2016: Beauty, an initiative of the IU College of Arts and Sciences.

Demonstrations: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., and 2:30 to 4 p.m.
Discussion: 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
