|5th Grader "J" has been waiting to get his hands on this project from the first day of class: "Altered Stuffies: Soft-sculptures made from old friends"|
|"A" (grade 7) bought a quilt kit and brought it to class work on - she is tacking down the binding today|
|Needle-felted butterfly design is felted onto a background (also felt) for a pillow design - by "S," grade 7|
| Our donated dress form is getting more attention these days|
A few students are inspired to try "draping" fabric to create fashion designs, as seen on the popular show "Project Runway," and find they have all they need to give that a try here in the studio (above photos showing yesterday's beginnings; selecting fabrics and incubating ideas, and today's progress; more purposeful crafting)
I'm happy to observe the interest students have in this area and glad that I expanded the space for the Fiber Arts Center to occupy in the studio so that we can accommodate practice and inquiry here.
Tomorrow: Wool sorting! (Can you smell the lanolin from there?)
