Last Friday we went to our first class at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. It was part of the home schooling series they put on, and well worth checking out for any children over three years old. The topic was “Textiles” and we spent the time wandering around the museum with our instructor looking at four different textiles: rug, traditional Peruvian weaving, a New England quilt, and a Peruvian hanging with European concepts. After the tour everyone did a weaving craft: colored wires and beads through burlap.
It was VERY cute 🙂 And then we got to sit in the museum cafe drinking coffee and eating cupcakes, which was extremely civilized.
