Session One: Sept. 6th-Oct. 18th

Mondays 3:45-5:15pm

Ages 8-12

This past summer at our Fibers Camp, we all got super into making tiny things using our new skills like hand-sewing, needle felting, and weaving. We had so much fun we decided it should be an afterschool program. In session One of Fibers Club, we’ll explore making soft and tiny objects. We’ll make miniature needle felted pets, weave dollhouse rugs, make teenie-tiny macrame, and stitch little bitty quits. This club is best for makers with some hand-sewing skills but all abilities are welcome.

Being a maker is all about creativity, problem-solving, and collaboration. Join us for a special program that deepens our understanding of the maker process through a variety of craft and design practices. We’ll explore personal identity and community by creating objects that will make the world a little brighter and more functional. Makers will utilize design thinking strategies to develop concepts that help us to lead our best lives. We’ll use materials like wood, fabric, paint, upcycled goodies, hot glue, and cardboard while we learn all about safe studio practices (including how to use power tools), processes, and products. This is the perfect opportunity to take a deep dive into your creative identity to create change.
