Fiber Studio 1
Audience: Adults and Kids
Suggested Schedule: 6 to 8 weeks / 12 - 16 hour class
Textile art is meditative, relaxing, and wonderful for mind and the creative spirit! Studies are showing that working with textile art processes can decrease blood pressure and stress hormones -- as well as be enjoyable an rewarding. Fiber Studio 1 is an introductory textile art sampler class that will spend two weeks each on three or four techniques, depending on class length. Projects may include counted stitching, embroidery, fabric dyeing, simple soft sculpture, beading, and weaving. Emphasis will be on learning different techniques and experimenting on a small scale, simple works during class time. The techniques can be later used by participants in personal projects that are larger and more complex. This is a good class for people who have limited experience with the media and want to experiment to see what they might like to do more with in the future.
