Ainsle Seeber of the Mystic Aquarium invited us to demonstrate our knot tying during Mystic Spirit Week at the aquarium April 13 - 20. This invitation led to us testing out our handout and hone our teaching ability.
I was going to show off fancy knotwork and had everything lined up for that. In case visitors wanted something to take away, Jill decided we should teach a simple bracelet someone could take home afterwards. I agreed thinking that a dozen or two kids would have a good time,
Our knot class quickly grew to a feeding frenzy of excitement for learning, with all 8 stations filled for 4 hours each day, with more students watching and learning as well.
I'd like to thank the Mystic Aquarium for giving us the opportunity to give back to the community. The Aquarium has meant a lot to our family my whole life. I was even in the only graduating class to ever get diplomas at the Aquarium back in 1988 :)
