VISUAL & FIBRE ARTS
All students at odyssey heights learn to: knit, crochet, weave, drop spin yar, dye yarn, felt, sew, and more…
All girls learn to knit in September on the first overnight trip.
On the other overnight trips girls learn to crochet, drop spin, dye yarn, and do small/tapestry weaving.
With all the time that we spend travelling to day and overnight trips, knitting, crochet, and weaving gives girls something fun and productive to do while travelling.
Fibre arts is part of the Middle School Visual and Fibre Arts curriculum.
All students participate in the monthly Fibre Arts Club meetings on Tuesdays from 4:30-5:25pm
All girls can learn to spin yarn on a drop spindle and there is an optional portable spinning wheel package.
Incredibly strong connections to science, engineering, math, and computer science:
Computer binary code, and the first working computer code storage (punch cards) originated with the Jacquard weaving looms of the 1800s.
