More Drop spindle demo
I love ccorrupting I mean teaching the kids spindling from a historical point of view. Today was a demo of medieval life and times from a textile and historical point of view. It was great to watch the kids try spinning, carding wool and figuring out how it all worked. They asked a lot of great questions about dyeing, spinning, weaving and even how the animals all fit it :)
It was a great day for me and I hope for the kids as well. The teachers already asked me if I would come back next year so I think it went well :)
