BEGINNING 3-D ART
bfl roving & spinning hook made from a coat hanger
Just found this great pix of Ms. Hall learning to spin & ply her yarn.
Sorry Donna for not finding it sooner and putting it into the original post.
First of all let me introduce you to jack of all trades,
Cross Country & Track and Field,
a Paraeducator for one of my students who joins us everyday for the Beginning 3-D class.
Occasionally he gets to join in on an assignment,
and I'm discovering that he has an artistic gift for design & craftsmanship as well.
Here he is learning to spin yarn,
a very difficult global skill.
It takes extreme concentration to learn this skill as you can see.
The kids were totally unaware that I was even taking photos of them.
And here are the young ones plying their singles
and using the sink facets to stretch their yarn from.
Of course their are lots of other ways to learn these skills but the coat hanger as spinning hook
and stretching out the singles seems to work best with the beginners.
