weaving workshops

I finished the last day of a weaving workshop with fifty kids from ages 5-12. I’m so grateful for the Capilano alumni that came out to help and to the parent volunteers that quickly learned how to weave! It was amazing to see how focused and intentional everyone was. At times, the room was so quiet. It’s always interesting to see the kinds of goals they set for themselves and the varying abilities in dealing with challenges. For some it came easy and for others it was a lot of work. I’m so proud of these kids. They are all amazing artists even if they don’t always see it yet. Can’t wait to work with them again next year!
