Key Dates
September 15 – One member of your group must have emailed me with names of group members and the craft you will be learning.

You will work in groups of 2-4 to design a 20-30 minute hands-on workshop or demo. Your group will give this workshop in class on September 29 to me and your peers.

Your workshop should include:

  • a brief background or history of the practice
  • the materials and tools needed
  • an overview of the process
