Teapot & I have been sick all week, so I don’t have any quilty stuff to show you (we’ve been napping & knitting…)
But I can tell you about the sewing classes I’ll be teaching this fall at Art at the Center in Alexandria, Virginia!
In the Intro to Sewing Class
we’ll be making bookmarks while learning about the sewing machine and the basics of operating the machine.
In the Sewn Fabric Collage Class
kids will use a piece of fabric as the “canvas” & use fabric pieces to create a design of their choosing. Then they will sew the pieces & embellish as desired. By the end of class they will have several of these pieces they can put on a ring & build upon later at home.
In the 3-D Creations Class
kids will learn how to take an idea from a sketch & turn it into a reality. There are no limits on what they can make in this class!
This is my third semester to be teaching at Art at the Center & I’ve never been so excited about these classes! I’ve changed the format greatly to incorporate more play & more room for individual creativity. I want to write on this is more depth, (once my head clears from this sick fogginess), but know that I think play learning benefits more than just toddlers- that elementary kids *need* to play with sewing machines!
I can’t wait to see your kids in my classes!
