DeSoto Trail Elementary blended the weaving/spinning experience with a media program highlighting the story of Woolbur, by Leslie Helakoski. Students read the story in the days before I arrived, but they really didn't relate to the process until they actually saw it done.

Woolbur does not run with the flock, would rather play with dogs instead, and is fascinated by spinning and weaving and dyeing. And so he experiments on his own wool, while he's still wearing it. As he so often refrains, "Isn't it great!"


School-wide presentations, grades K-4.

The ARC groups at Madison & Monticello used weavings in a different way


.We shot photos of ourselves, cut & manipulated the shapes into montages.
Then we wove them on the loom.
These images showed our interests, which "dressed" life-size cutouts of ourselves.

A good way to personalize our space at the center.
