25 May 2012 WE SCRAP: Aug 4th Coil Baskets w/ Sharon Anderson
WE SCRAP! Workshops for Educators:
Creative Reuse Projects for the Classroom
The idea is to present creative reuse projects that tie into the curriculum and use materials offered at SCRAP’s teacher material give-aways.
Many cultures have been making coil baskets for centuries, using the native materials available to them. This project can be integrated into the state requirements to study California history. Participants will create their own one-of-a-kind basket using the same coil technique as the California Native Americans, but instead of Tule, we will use discarded cords, yarn and fabric from SCRAP.
Participants will be presented with an instruction sheet including a list of California Content Standards that this project fulfills as well as a classroom package of materials for this project.
