On the last day of the year the Fiber Arts Club left their mark on the lion. Instead of painting the statue, club members “yarn bombed” him with a multi-colored scarf. Perling, basket weave, knitting, and cable stitch are all visible in the scarf, which is more than 50 inches long.
“Students tag the lion the same way every time,” said Rachel Chambers, a fine and performing arts teacher and the club’s advisor. “I wanted the Fiber Arts Club to do it in their own way.”
She said her thanks go out to Fiber Arts Club members Nick Pattison ’14, Yuwei Cao ’16, Alex Peng ’13, Amelia DeFrancis ’16, and Brendan Shaeffer ’16 for their great effort this year!
