Instructor: Lee Darter and Candace Penders

Let’s make gorgeous works of art on silk and learn to sculpt and weave with fibers and fabrics. Artist and Elementary Art Instructor Lee Darter will teach students to embellish fabrics with their own designs using natural fibers and traditional felting techniques. We will build 3-D soft sculptures from fabric, and practice some weaving on simple looms. Take inspiration from the beautiful surroundings and animals of Windy Knoll Farm, eat lunch outside, and photograph nature for visual references. Camp activities will be held indoors in comfortable art studios. Afternoon projects will include creating designs and painting on silk utilizing a safe dye-resist method. We will make vibrant textile creations that are wearable, usable, or ready for display. Learn more about the field location at www.windyknollfarm.com.

Camp fee includes $25.00 supply fee.
