Want to feel like a millionaire?

on February 17, 2012

…it’s easy… do something you really like doing, that’s what I did and I feel richer for it. Half term means a step away from the curriculum and working with children without a clock ticking and Ofsted wagging a finger! This week has been fantastic fun. Teaching children to crochet made me feel like a millionaire. We made pom-poms to start off with, then we moved on to a spot of weaving and once the fascination had been cultivated, we then moved on to making chains with our crochet hooks. It was exactly the type of workshop that had me fascinated as a youth. I hope one of the many children I’ve worked with this week pursues textiles, if not as a career, as a very rewarding pastime.
