Both beautiful and useful, handicrafts allow students of all ages to develop skills while improving habits of attention, orderliness, and tenacity. Mrs. Estes and Mrs. Cook will help students experiment and develop skills with several different handicrafts over the semester beginning with weaving corn husks and fabric and moving on to paper crafts, such as quilling, and then to hand sewing and crafts from leather and wood. The instructors will work with each student to personalize projects at the student’s level of ability and experience. By the end of the semester, students will have created both decorative and practical items including an item for charitable donation and/or gift-giving.
