There's that Ol' sayin; "you can't teach Ol' dogs new tricks". Bull pucky!
I teach a quilting class at the local senior center and I carve with a group of wood carvers at the senior center. I have taught classes of beginner carvers of all ages. Most of the learners could be classified as OLD; at least what I used to think old was. I'm talkin between 60 and 80 years old.
There is not a week that goes by, that I am not completely "blown away" with the "New tricks" that these folks have learned. Folks that up until 12 months ago had never sewed two pieces of fabric together, now are making fabulous quilts. Folks that had never carved more than a point on a stick, that are creating really good wood carvings.
I will be showing some of the wood carvings on this blog in the coming week.
I invite you to send in comments and photos that disprove that Ol' sayin, "you cannot teach Old dogs new tricks".
