Mind you, this was my first time tackling the teen group during the Ohio Craft Museum's Young Masters summer program but was up for the challenge. The day would prove to not only take me out of my "comfort zone" but to serve as a reminder of the many hours I spent as a teen simply "making things" during those long hot summers. It was really satisfying to see how hard the girls worked during the two half day sessions...when something didn't work the first time around...they just kept on going and worked it out!

I look forward to working with the teens again as we continue to learn from one another during the "Project Accessories" workshops at the Ohio Craft Museum.
This summer the workshop will expand to 3-half day sessions as we dig through bins of unusual materials just waiting to be re-purposed into jewelry, pouches and other wonderful things that teen girls will enjoy.
