9th grade spinning

cell phone case (finished project)

Spinning with 9th grade has been challenging and fun!

we only had 8 double periods for this Art block but is has been very rewarding for them.  My next block with them in May will be Basket weaving.

we started with spinning on a stick with some white batting, then we moved into the drop spindle, spinning with white  pre prepped spinning fleece, soon we went into different colored fleece, we plant dyed some of their work and ended with adding in  funky yarn to the spinning because they needed that extra challenge, color and sanguine interest.
