In Minni WeaveShop textile designers ages 6–10 will learn about the entire weaving process to create their own woven wall hangings from a variety of fuzzy fibers and colorful natural yarns. Minni Instructor Caroline will emphasize color palette, pattern and texture as students explore all the wonders of weaving with a simple lap loom. Students will take home their finished piece and a loom perfect for at-home practice.
Caroline is a DC native who has also lived in both New York and Texas, where she studied Elementary Education and received her Montessori training before settling in Cambridge. A lifelong crafter, Caroline has been knitting, crocheting, drawing, and sewing since she was a young child, but loves to experiment with any visual arts medium. She enjoys incorporating visual arts into her classroom, from illustrating stories to mindful weaving practices. When she is not teaching elementary school, Caroline can be found designing her handmade wardrobe or creating toys for her friends. She encourages her students to take risks and use art as a form of expression.
