Children enjoy creating with their hands and will be excited to discover the rich and varied world of fiber arts. This class can be flexible to meet the needs of your group.
We will start with learning about sheep varieties, washing greasy fleece and seeing why it’s the easiest fiber to spin. Don’t miss dyeing that fleece with Kool-aid and blending those colors to make your own felt pieces. Other possibilities for your adventure with fiber arts are sewing, applique and tapestry weaving techniques. We can even create a seven strand braid using the Japanese braiding technique of kumihimo.
