Today, by 8:30 a.m. we were all in the studio and eager to get it all underway. So, although class "officially" starts at 9, we were up and running as soon as everyone was there--and that was early!
So, today involved putting together and warping the Archie Brennan-style frame looms I'd brought and beginning the first exploration of meet and separate. We got to the point of hatching by the end of the day and we'll do diagonals, add a third color (and get the meet/separate sequence correct), and pick & pick tomorrow. After that, they'll have the option of warping a second loom and developing a cartoon to follow.
Here are a few of the stages along the way today:
