Craft in the classroom with Ballinamore N.S.

I've been involved in the 'Craft in the Classroom' project with the Crafts Council of Ireland. I was paired with Scoil Bhrid Naofa, Ballinamore, Co. Leitrim to work with 5/6th class girls. We collaborated to make a 3d textile art installation for their classroom window entitled "Precious Treasures". I was very impressed with the girls' enthusiasm for the project and their ability to work together to problem-solve and decide on the details of their final piece. I learned how to take a back seat and let the children make the project their own
