From 2016-2018, Emily conducted textile research and co-creation kits to better understand how making activities can be situated in the classroom. She explored how post-secondary institutions can make meaningful contributions to k-12 education and address gaps in the new BC Curriculum. Throughout this project, she conducted 8 co-creation sessions and recorded informal interviews with 5 educators in BC. Interviews are listed in the soundcloud link below. The completed project was exhibited at the Emily Carr grad show. The textile piece is a slow making project. It was created as a result of spinning and weaving activities from 2012-2014, and woven throughout the 2 years by students at Emily Carr. Many hands were on this cloth!
