Yes, my contest cozy would be really educational for loads of kids Smiley Smiley Smiley
Sorry about that Smiley Smiley
But you're right, I recently taught my son how to do cardweaving, and he loves it. He likes it more than any craft he's learned so far. OK, he's a nerd Smiley and I told him that crafty people are good at maths, like him (and didn't even bluash Smiley ), and that made it very attractive for him.
But I think no kid can resist the magic of turning a wild bunch of yarn into a pattern  like card weaving does. My son's friend is already begging to get taught, too, and I promised him his own weft (sometimes I can be so daft). The fact that these are things that are not related to school makes them even more attractive. The focus is more on the making and crafting, and less on competition or fulfilling someone else's standards.
But enough off-topic chat. I like the idea of collecting ideas on how to teach or demonstrate historic crafts, that would be great to have in our historic board.

Also on a larger scale teaching children a crafts is a mean to teaching history but also reaching those children who has a need for something practical work to learn.

There is nothing more rewording than seeing a child experiencing learning as something positive instead of constant defeats.

As a side note: I would volunteer as moderator if a historic board were to be made. I have gathered quite a bit of knowledge about more than two historic periods and on the sideline I have a very big group of friends who all do reenactment (in different time periods) - from various countries. Many of them have university degrees in history or archeology. So I have a pretty good network for getting new knowledge if needed.

I would love a new board for historic crafts! I've spent so much time sifting through all the boards, a new board would make this much easier. I'm in!

I agree as well. I search and search for all kinds of historical ideas/completed projects/new projects that others have posted and end up coming short. Either there are none or I'm just not finding them.  One place for all that wonderful stuff would be fantastic. My bff would totally agree as well. We're both really into going to ren/medieval faires and checking out reenactments. We're always looking for period techniques and just cool, fun stuff. A whole board dedicated to it would rock my socks off!

I was just looking for advice on making tallow candles and came across this thread. I'd love to see a place just for historical projects. I know there are a number of craftsters that I've had a chat with that participate in historical reenactment and so I'm sure that there would be more than a handful that used the board. I know I'd check it out!

I would love to have such a board, too!  Grin I still have lots of half-finished reenactment projects and they wait to be finished and posted!

I would also love to see this board happen.  I make and sell historic wood toys.  I go to renaissance faires and mountain man reenactments.  I belong to the local historical society.

I have lots of information to share, but there's really no place to put it right now.

Since our history board is not in sight yet *sigh*, I was wondering what you'd say about a historic craft-a-long? We could link to complete projects there, and also show off our work in progress.
