I taught a basket weaving workshop with children for the first time in many many years, today. I will admit I really over prepared, I spent too many hours working on prep for it. So, when the day was done, I felt let down. It was however a big success. It is just my sensitive artist self showing its face. We used cardboard strips for the reed, and recycled shrink wrap for the weavers.
Because of children's privacy laws, I was only allowed to take photos of their working hands. Their working hands say it all anyway, they were busy, and for the most part they enjoyed themselves. The photos are just a few examples of the beautiful baskets the children wove.
