Volunteer Demonstration Request

Volunteer(s) Needed – Last Call

A local elementary school (Poe) is looking for someone to do six 25-minute demonstration on historical handweaving. This is in conjunction with their Williamsburg Day activities and tied to the 5th grade US History curriculum. The activity is on Thursday, November 15, 2018 from 8 am to 1 pm with a 7:30 arrival. Lunch will be from 1 pm – 2 pm.

There will be six 25 minute sessions. Five guilds have been invited to give a presentation to each of the classes. Each guild will have its own room and the children will rotate through each of these rooms to hear the presentations. There will be 2 adults accompanying the students for all the presentations.

Poe is located at 5100 Hazard Street near the Museum District.

The need is just a couple of weeks from now. Please respond to the website email immediately – weavehouston@gmail.com – by October 31st! Two volunteers would be ideal. Local outreach and education is a part of the guild’s mission.
