Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: summer camp

As the morning kids finished their clay projects, it was time to start their next project.
This time… we switched to weaving! Which requires a LOT of focus & determination as
they each need to create their own loom before they can start to weave. We spent much
of the morning cutting strings and attaching them to their dowel rods. Tomorrow we’ll
continue by hanging them from the ceiling, attaching a bottom rod and adding a brick
at the bottom to help add some tension to the strings. Once their loom is strung,
the fun of weaving can begin… until then… focus, focus, focus!!!
