In this popular week-long camp we will play with ways to make plain fabric fabulous. Using dye, prints, embroidery, applique and sun prints we will turn reclaimed fabric into colorful flags. Each participant will finish with a unique banner made from their flags and loads of inspiration and resources to customize projects at home. Pack a sack lunch and be ready to get messy with your creativity!
Requirements: No experience necessary, but participants must be able to safely handle scissors, needles and carving tools. All materials provided.
Dates: Monday to Friday, 7/9 – 7/13
Time: 10am to 2pm each day
