When your back is turned
It is amazing what kids can do when you give them directions than turn them loose. Here’s what the kids at Silverdale Baptist Elementary School in Chattanooga, TN did on their Appalachian Art Day Festival. I showed them how to weave on the floor loom then let a few weave while the rest of the classes saw samples and other processes that turn fibers into clothing. Clothes don’t come from the store after all, cotton is picked, wool is sheered then fibers are carded, spun, and woven.
