Experience Level: 
Number of Classes: 

In this six-week class, your children will have the opportunity to try a variety of textile arts: weaving on a cardboard loom, wet felting, needle felting, and fabric banners. Each week they’ll try a new technique. Students will learn to sew buttons, sew basic stitches, to use wool to create a unique textile art, and create fun woven designs with yarn. At the end of each week, we’ll discuss the next week’s project in order to plan and design throughout the week.  Students will be taught how to safely use textile tools, have the chance to practice scissor skills, and most importantly, discover new creative outlets.
