Working With Kids
In case you haven’t noticed, I love working with kids. We have a Farm Camp at our place for my granddaughter and her longtime friends every summer. Each year as they grow, way too fast as with all normal kids, we build a bigger structure. But they still make Fairy Houses out of whatever they find. Their stories are fun to listen to and inspiring as well.
I’m teaching at the John C. Campbell Folk School‘s Little/Middle Folk School this week. A one week camp for 337 (this year) kids. The Middle girls I’m working with are warping – two days of pain- and weaving – three joyous days – on the school’s floor looms. They are very into patterns, color, and texture with amazing results.
