Have you ever wanted to learn how to knit or sew, but didn’t know where to start?  Want to create art that is wearable and versatile?  Experience fiber crafts that are rich in history yet practical and portable.  Learn how to spin your own yarn, dye it in a variety of colors, read a pattern, knit and sew.  Supplies are included, and campers can bring projects home at the end of the summer camp.

For Whom: Children ages 8 & Up
Dates: Monday-Friday August 8-12th

More Details:

This camp is an introduction into the Fibre Arts.  Activities such as sewing, knitting and spinning offer a hands-on way to have children learn about the rich history of textile arts.  The camp seeks to give children the skills to create useful objects themselves.  Crafts such as knitting, sewing and spinning teach muscle dexterity, patience and planning.

At the end of the camp students will be able to bring home their projects (both finished and in progress) which include: knitted fingerless ‘mitts,’ project bag, knitting needles, remaining yarn, project box, dyed yarn and spun thread.

Students will also learn intangible skills including: how to read information on yarn band, how to figure out if gauge is correct, reading a knitting pattern, a handful of sewing stitches, and an understanding of how yarn/rope is made.
