Fairhaven Residents Cultivate Creativity Making Rugs

“Integrace Fairhaven resident Carolyn Freitag, formerly of Eldersburg, worked diligently on a rug with a floral design during the Sykesville continuing care residential retirement community’s workshop on Rya rug making Thursday.

“Rya rug making is an ancient craft which dates back to the days of the Vikings.

“’I was first in line to sign up,’ Freitag said. ‘I’m a weaver, spinner and knitter and working with fiber always attracts me. It’s a little bit of work to make the knots, but it’s fun.’

“According to grant coordinator Laura Gillen, the workshops are part of Fairhaven’s Cultivating Creativity program, which is supported by a $21,500 grant awarded to Fairhaven in 2016 by Aroha Philanthropies through its national Seeding Vitality Arts initiative.”
