Class Description: Folk art is fun! Have your younger ones been eyeing the Creative Crafts of the World classes at Labyrinth? Have you needed to say 'Not yet, sweetie. You're not old enough yet' too often? Now, we've got something new for you: a CCW class for 2nd and 3rd graders! The crafts will still be *real living folk crafts* from around the world, we will still discuss far-away cultures, traditional dress, and geography. But the skills will be age-appropriate, and prep the students for learning that the world is a lot larger than just Washington state. (Crafts taught in this class will be distinct from the crafts taught later in the CCW 1-4 series of classes) Skills taught in this class (year A) may include any of the following: rope making, felted soap, woven potholders, painting nutcracker figures (Germany), basic origami (Japan), kumihimo on a foam disc (Japan), Day of the Dead skulls (Mexico), Native American sand painting, God's Eye decorations (Mexico), Mosaic stepping stones (ancient Greece & Rome), bee's wax candles, shadow puppets (Indonesia)
