turning around America day 2
Today, Beth Ireland brought Turning Around America to the Clear Spring School wood shop to teach the making of wooden whistles. The 4th, 5th and 6th did sculptural forms sawn, rasped and sanded from wood. The 10th, 11th and 12th grade students used the lathe. Our students are a bit unusual from the students Beth usually teaches, in that our students are already actively engaged in making things from wood. The skill of our students impressed Beth, but our students were also impressed with what they were able to make under her guidance. Ozric said of his whistle, "This is the nicest thing I've ever made."
