Perhaps you noticed the flax plot in front of Theatre Hall over the summer? The plot was sponsored by a Research Council grant to Professor Heidi Sherman, and it represents a collaboration between Sherman and Professor Alison Gates (Art and Women & Gender Studies). Assisted by students Alicia Engstrom and Travis Willer, Sherman and Gates planted and harvested the flax over the summer. They recently began processing the flax, and ultimately they plan to weave the fibers into cloth. This year-long project is part of Prof. Sherman’s research on flax and linen in medieval Russia. For more details, see this blog post, and contact Professor Sherman or Gates if you’d like to get involved!
