Playful Textiles is all about hands-on exploration, giving children autonomy over their process and their product. Campers will explore different fabrics, materials, and accessories through daily open-ended, playful projects. Each day will be a new experience, and campers are encouraged to use their imagination to truly make their work their own. Projects will include sun prints, games, embroidery, and interactive play with textiles!
Requirements: All materials provided! No sewing experience required.
Dates: June 26th-30th
Time: 10am – noon daily
