I actually wasn't sure whether to call it a Mother-Daughter craft kit or a Grandma-Grandchild craft kit, somehow the grandam grandchild sounded too longish , although this is the story behind how this kit idea was born....
a few days a go I was asked if the ISK technique is achievable for an 8 year old, luckily I could answer from my own experience , when Hagar, my daughter, was about that age I taught her to wire crochet in my technique ! coming to think of it, she was my first student ! but hey ! keep in mind that not all kids are the same , as not all adults are.
From my experience young hands with gentle motor skills, can with no problem learn to wire crochet, in a way it's even easier for them than for accomplished crocheters , because their hands are used to certain movements etc that don't work that well wiht my technique.
Hagar is now almost 20 , and we tried together to recall if it was in any way difficult for her , and she remembers it as very easy , fun and straightforward ....
For a month or so she did really great things but than packed them all in a nice round box and moved on to sewing, which didnt last that long either ... ha ha , I hope she won't read this blog post ...
I believe crafting together creates a special bonding vibe , I see it happening in my workshops , the hands are busy , the mind is free and the good vibes crafting brings , fills the heart with joy and accomplishment .
