orlando folk arts festival

 This morning, the girls and I went to the Folk Arts Festival at the Mennello Museum of Art. It's not a huge event but there's some interesting art. What we love most is seeing the old crafts being demonstrated. Several participants encouraged the children to learn their art. This woman has taught her three granddaughters how to make lace and I hope that they will teach their children. It's amazing to watch.

Definitely a highlight was getting to work the loom. The women running this booth had incorporated all different materials, including plastics and blue jeans.
