Turn bits of fabric, bags of yarn, and other items you’ve been saving for a rainy day into unique works of art! Under the guidance of an environmental artist, use coiling, wrapping, random weave, sewing, and binding techniques to make animals and birds out of recycled textiles and scavenged materials. Develop your own approach to make the animals you see in the world around you. We will start with creatures that walk or crawl and end the week with ones that fly. All levels welcome.
