Teach Kids to Weave

Volunteer at Lindberg School Wednesdays 5-7pm

Last summer, a group of weavers spent a few Wednesdays at Lindberg School on the north side of Madison from 5-7 p.m. These are elementary/middle school children, and we just give them a chance to weave as part of a summer enrichment program. We had one loom, and at the end of the 6-7 week program we cut the samples apart and gave them back to the school to give to the new weavers. This year we could have 2 looms.

Are you interested in helping? These are the dates:June 12 June 19 June 26 uly 3 (maybe, I will check) July 10 July17 July 24.
