A degree in FINE ARTS and being being certified in k-12 teaching art gives me a different approach to art than regular class room teachers have.This is a time to let go. No grades or expectations.
I am a authorized, and certified Saori weaving Studio as well.
This fall Saori Santa Cruz is on the move again ...this time I am off to public schools.
bobbin racks and boat shuttles with the wound bobbins along with yarns took a few days to organize.
my husband lee loaded up the SAORI looms that I put in LOOM BAGS and off we went to the school situated right off the georgeous pacific California coast
a lovely ride along the coast.
Two of the class room teachers helped after I gave them a quickie saori crash course.
then they started to get excited right along with the children.They were a tremendous asset.
tapestry circle looms and Saori looms
while at adjacent tables the rest wove on differnt hand held looms.
SAORI LOOMS are so well designed it is a joy to teach with them as well as weave on them. Children as young as four can weave on the Saori piccolo model
The students, even some with disabilities, and spacial manipulative issues , all did amazing!
I do not know who had more fun, the students, the teachers or me?
The magic wand for this class was repalced by the magic shuttles.
Peace at the loom
