Step 1: Making Masks
Pulled out the carousel fabrics and choose a couple for our masks: carousel animals and balloons for the ladies; bold stripes for the gents. And the carousel picnic scene for the bathroom curtain. ordered some elastic and downloaded a pattern.
Step 2: Topping Tables
We need to clear the tables; wipe down with soap and bleach; and set the stations for social distancing. The six-foot tables will have two stations; the eight-foot table will have three stations. That means we only have seating for six students and a teacher at any one time for workshops. For open classes we could set up two more five-foot tables in the kitchen, for a total of ten plus teacher. It is not quite the recommended six-foot social distancing (more like 3 1/2 to 5) but better than our usual setup.
Step 3: Visiting Video
That is, learning how to make and upload a video of our lesson OR how to broadcast live for those who wish to do the workshops at home.
Step 4: Creating Classes
- Learning to Mud — Kelly salt & pepper shakers
- “Flower of Hawaii” — brushstroke workshop on Hyacinth Vase
- Metallic Rub-On Paste — on animal angels
- Flower Garden Plaque — “Artful Daisies” on lattice plate (similar to this one)
- “Lemons Times Two” — on pie plat
