The apple does not fall far from the tree. My daughter has been teaching workshops this week. (ahem… like mother, like daughter… yay!)
Yesterday, she taught 15 children how to weave- can you hear the happy dance I am doing? and can you feel the waves of delight pouring out of me? 😀
(Two of the little girls are so excited about weaving and so in love with it, that they are asking their moms to buy them looms!)
While Chloë has been teaching other munchkins, I have been having a blissful time with her son…. and guess what we have been doing?
Yup. I’ve been weaving with my grandbaby.
I figure that it is never too early to start children weaving. When our kids were little, I had looms warped for them and set up so that they could weave whenever they wanted. And, weave they did.
And, even though my son weaves his art through film making nowadays, my daughter is still a weaver…. and now we have the next generation merrily enjoying time at the loom….
He’s helping me to weave some narrow warp face bands on my Saori floor loom. The bands will be embellishments for some other pieces that I am working on.
And, whenever I look at them, I will have such happy memories of weaving at the loom with our wee boy.
