Schedule & Kits:
Monday: Wet Felting – Using colored pieces of loose sheep wool, learn wet felting techniques to create your very own piece of fabric, perfect to hang in your favorite room or use as a coaster.
Tuesday: Embroidered Bandanas – Get started by learning 3 basic embroidery stitches: running stitch, back stitch, and stem stitch. Using a water-soluble fabric marking pencil and vibrant colors of floss, explore these stitches as you embellish your own unique bandana.
Wednesday: Beaded Bookmark – Using a design template, sketch different beading designs and learn how to convert your visual drawing into a pattern. Then follow your pattern to string rows of beads onto a loom, creating a unique piece of artwork to keep or give to a loved one.
Thursday: Quilted Magnet – Quilting basics are easy to learn and a great way to explore color and design. Learn to make miniature quilt to use as a covering for a small magnet to stick anywhere–and then design and make another one in your own style!
Friday: Show & Tell – Join together with your classmates to show off what you’ve made!
Materials: The kits come with all the tools and materials you will need except for a bowl, scissors, and a pencil. Shipping and postage included.
