The Creative Center – teaching a workshop in fiber, Friday, February 20th
Friday, February 20, 2015;
10:00am – 3:00pm
Class Location: University Settlement, 184 Eldridge Street, Art Room
Starting with a pre-knitted piece of fabric (no knitting necessary, unless you would like to), we will make our own personalized small purse/pouch. The class will explore embroidery, duplicate stitch, braiding, and crochet as forms of embellishment. Supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring a few items of your own (buttons, beads, small pictures, etc.) to add to your project to make it all the more personally expressive. Though many of us will be making a purse/pouch, you could easily turn your project into a pillow, or a picture frame, or… Let your creativity guide the way!
