When the Art’s Council asked me to teach a “Fiber Fun Camp” this summer, I was both excited and scared. Teaching knitting to kids is always a challenge, especially if they are under the age of 10. However, after the first couple of hours with the class I was able to establish that they were just as excited as I was and in the end we had an amazing week!
By the end of the very long week (9-4 Monday through Friday) each student left with a smile on their face and a new found favorite skill. Weather it was weaving, spinning, embroidery, knitting or crochet.
We all had an amazing week and even I learned a few new things. I started doing some more crochet and even got bitten by the weaving bug. Look out world, there are new fiber artists on the horizon!
