- Spring Online Homeschool Parent, 2020
Children Ages 7-14
Explore and play an imp-like creature who spins the straw into gold. Rumplestiltskin is a fairy tale popularly associated with Germany. The story originated around 4,000 years ago and Revels has revived it with a new twist! On top of playing a thread spinning creature, you can learn how to create your own beautiful textile with Dahlia Popovits of Dahlia Handmade Gallery, a skilled tradition bearer and educator of 40 years. As a tradition bearer, she has learned weaving techniques from all over the world. She has traveled exclusively to learn how to weave in authentic styles.
So, If you're looking for an educational, interactive, musical and creative program, look no further! Revels will share and celebrate the art and stories associated with weaving, humming tunes of the weavers, and reveling in the joy of interacting with other enthusiastic peers.
This fall we will be offering two synchronous classes.
To meet all family needs, we have designed a unique hybrid model for this homeschool session. For those students interested in meeting in person, they will arrive at our Watertown location every other week for instruction. For the weeks they are not meeting, or the “off weeks”, they will get their instruction online. For those students who are interested in meeting online, each week will be offered online. The online sessions will be broadcast via a live stream on the weeks that other students are meeting in person. It will be a synchronous, hybrid class. During the “off weeks” all enrolled students will meet online.
Online Class: students will meet via Zoom, Wednesdays, September 16 through November 11. They will have a live stream performance on the 18th.
Hybrid Class: Students will meet virtually Sept. 16. Sept. 30, Oct. 14, Oct. 28 and Nov. 11. They will meet in person at the Revels office Sept. 23, Oct. 7, Oct. 21 and Nov. 4. Their final performance will be recorded on November 18 and sent to parents.
Technical requirements necessary for the course:
a computer or tablet (not a cellphone)
working webcam, microphone and speaker
basic knowledge of google drive
Zoom teleconfrencing software
audio recording device (cellphone ok for this)
