Ai Ikuma teaches craft at the LA Center for Enriched Studies, and first started coming to CAFAM Craft Nights to get ideas for her students.
Why CAFAM: "My two daughters and I love craft! First Thursday night at CAFAM is our date night."
Fond Memory: "When the girls got to do the rainbow loom, my 10 year-old went crazy with it. She started to make tons of bracelets and created new designs. At the time she was learning about business in her classroom so she and her partner came up with a business plan to sell their bracelets. They took orders from friends, calculated how much it cost to buy materials. It was amazing to see how much she got into it!"
Favorite Exhibition(s): "The bugs! [Jennifer Angus, 2011]. We also love how the walls outside the museum change every time"
