Will you let me be your servant?

Within the Mennonite community, footwashing has long been held as a symbol of service. In this piece, I translated the words of the hymn Will you let me be your servant into a pattern, woven using material that I ripped, cut, and unraveled from my sweater. The woven towel is then used as part of a footwashing ceremony.
