I am learning a lot from my students. I have had the opportunity to work with a number of moms and daughters and have come to realize that kids can take to pin looms as quick or quicker than adults. Here's the proof.
Ellie T., age 11, was in my class a couple months ago. Here is her first purse.
I should mention that we did not cover purses in the pin loom class. While I hope that my book, Pin Loom Weaving, was helpful to her, this is Ellie's own design.
I will leave it to each of us to reflect on our capacity as artist or craftsman at the age of 11. I know that I did not make anything half as well thought out or well done until I was considerably older than 11, maybe more like 40.
Ellie, thank you so much for sharing your work with us.
