Fiber arts elicit a multitude of reactions from art teachers. Some love this medium while others tolerate or even avoid it. Visions of needles, scissors, and tumbleweeds of yarn can be exciting or overwhelming and downright scary! This course is designed to conquer your fears and boost your fiber arts curriculum, no matter how scant or extensive it may be. Take your lessons to the next level with hands-on assignments focused on 2D and 3D weaving, needle felting, wet felting, embroidery and more!
You will work, hands-on, through demonstrations and projects that are fresh and exciting. Led by experts in the field, this class will take “old-school” techniques and make them cool again. You will conquer organization and management specific to fiber arts in the art room and create useful tools that break skills down for your students at any age level.
To complete this course you will need some basic fiber arts supplies, many of which you most likely already own. You will need a variety of colored paper and yarn, cotton warp, felting or embroidery tools, etc. We will send a basic list of supplies (including a Blick U list for easy ordering) via e-mail once you’ve registered.
