Week 8 Continued

I spent one morning this week sorting out our records from the Hidden Heritage Project - which also hit the press:http://www.helensburghadvertiser.co.uk/news/roundup/articles/2013/05/13/457083-video-hidden-heritage-project and was on BBC Radio Scotland Out of Doors as well.  I am missing the Arrochar alps, but on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday of this week I traded the Cobbler for Govan Old Church - just as evocative a place!  The re-display of the Govan stones is magic and well worth seeing for yourself http://www.thegovanstones.org.uk/  I spent several hours at the tail end of the week getting to grips with Adobe Illustrator to produce some learning materials for the p6-7s and their teachers on drop spinning.  Thanks to Ingrid for her patience!  

We used chopsticks and clay to make spindle whorls and then decorated them with Viking runes.  Whoever thought p6-7 boys would enjoy spinning so much?  We also did some paper weaving as a way of introducing the Weaving Truth with Trust project to the classes.  http://weavingtruthwithtrust.org/
