Today was a wonderful day . A 3rd grade class visits Saori Santa Cruz to learn all about wool, Last night I lined up a few of my saori looms , wheels , and drumcarder to be taken out on the deck to set up for the class visit today.
Deck set up this morning early and ready for the 17 students , plus parents and teachers......
OK READY SET GO!
hands on weaving
Many thanks to the mom's and teachers for there help winding bobbins....
supervising the spining wheel, and drum carder while I helped the students weaving.
Snack break, it was hard to pry some students from the loom and weaving!
Thank you Alison, holding a lovely cardered wool batt. She has a daughter in the class and helped coordinate the fun class visit.
SUCCESSES spinning too.
But They loved weaving!
Time to go, some moaning they wanted to stay, but I had so much fun too , a really great wonderful day!
Thanks to all the moms who carpooled and helped .... I am off to clean up ....
wait what is this confetti ? The looms on the deck had the plum tree blossoms sprinkled all over them they had suddenly floated to the looms, and deck , it was as if it was a celebration for the lovely sucessful day.
The finished cut off students group weavings. I will send them off to there class next week. I think a baner or even cut up in pices then sewen on a long string like flags to decorate and drape there class room would be cool too and my lovely thank you letters( which I hung on the gallery wall) from the students and teacher.....
PEACEFUL WEAVING , with WOOL, in the redwoods
