KIDSTUFF - Basketweaving for Children
Basketweaving with young people is really fun!
The simple weaving of reeds together to create a finished basket never fails to give a great sense of accomplishment. Your students are going to be ecstatic over their project!
Before your class date, be sure to read our Basketweaving with Children Teaching Tips.
It'll make your class a sure success!
Visit our Art Teachers Page for information on suggested basket kits for different grade levels, plus National Art Standards info for your lessons plans and much more!
We have an excellent booklet by veteran teacher & designer Linda Hebert which covers everything you need to know to get started teaching Basket weaving classes. General teaching guidelines, class scheduling, suggested charges, materials lists, class size and so on. All sorts of information that you probably never considered (unless you're already a teacher!) is covered to help give you self-confidence and make even your first classes a success. This booklet proves that knowing how to weave baskets is but a small part of actually teaching the skills. Revised and updated 2009.
