Both beautiful and useful, handicrafts allow students of all ages to develop skills while improving habits of attention, orderliness, and tenacity. Mrs. Estes will help students experiment and develop skills with several different handicrafts over each semester. Previous handicrafts have included weaving corn husks and fabric, paper crafts such as quilling, hand sewing, leather and wood crafts, kite making, and more.
The instructor works 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.
Families supply a pair of scissors and a ruler for student use.
