Come join us as we learn how to make art from natural fibers! Fibers come from both plants and animals, the most common fibers being wool, cotton, linen and paper. In this workshop, we learn all sorts of fiber arts such as felting, paper quilling, weaving and dyeing techniques. We begin the week by dyeing our own wool to make felted sculptures, some functional others decorative. Then we take time to learn the sculptural possibilities of paper by creating 3-D paintings, baskets, and bags. Fiber arts are not just limited to knitting, let your creativity soar with this less common art medium!
