Mystic Knotwork
Spirit Week hosted by

The Mystic Aquarium 

 

 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.

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.

 

Mystic Aquarium Sea Life Rescue and Rehabilitation

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 :)
