Crafting the farm’s bounty into wall art

Published 07/14/2010, Park Rapids Enterprise

Holly Froemke of Lisbon, N.D., weaves wheat into art, grown on the family farm. She uses black bearded wheat, which is traditionally made into pasta, or winter wheat, which is made into bread flour, to make wall designs that incorporate feathers and other dried plants from the farm. Froemke had a booth at last weekends craft fair in Park Rapids. She said she typically sells three-quarters of the inventory she brings to each show. She learned the craft from a book and has been making wheat pieces for decades. In Scandinavian countries, she said, the art is called corn dolly making. She does make a few dolls, but most of her works are wreaths, windmills and other farm designs.
