What you'll learn in this sewing & textile class:

Your camper(s) will get 4 great days of creative exploration and variety in textile artistry and design. Each project is packed with problem solving skills and design choices as they are guided and encouraged by a professional fiber artist. Grown-ups are welcome to sign-up with their kiddos, too..... this camp appeals to all ages! 

On Monday, campers will learn how to hand paint & dye yarn (suitable for knitting or weaving projects) and then go on to design and cut their own image suitable for reproduction printing. Campers will then go on to use their original design (together with studio images) as they learn about block printing on textiles and paper as they apply their prints to reclaim a cotton T-Shirt. (please send a light colored cotton shirt with your camper this day). 

On Tuesday campers will rinse their hand dyed yarn from the previous day and hang it to dry. Campers will then proceed to learn about hand weaving and will work on studio prepared looms and get right to the fun of real weaving to create colorful "Thrumori" textiles rich with texture and sparkle. 

Wednesday campers will remove their woven fabric and finish the piece to their vision when provided with options such as: wall hanging, Scarflet, cell phone sleeve or purse, doll blanket or ???? Campers will then be taught how to hand knit and once they have the hang of it.... grab their hand painted yarn from Monday convert it into a ball and get started on their one of a kind knitting project. 

Finally on Thursday, campers will learn how to set-up and use a bead-weaving loom, design and weave their own beaded bracelet they can proudly wear home from camp. Any remaining time this day may be spent finishing work on their hand woven or knitting projects. 

Important Things to Note:
All equipment and materials will be provided. Ages 10 through... grown-ups.

Campers should wear old clothes to camp Monday & Tuesday. Additionally, campers should bring a sack lunch each day for our mid-day break (we have a small fridge and micro).
