Upcoming Events

Wonder Wool - kids upcycle summer arts camp

Children

Dates: June 25-28, Tuesday to Friday. Time: 10am – 2pm daily. Ages:8+. Description: Start from scratch and see how yarn is made in this fun-filled four day camp. We’ll take natural wool fleece through the process of dyeing, carding, teasing, and spinning, and then use our handmade yarn to create our own woven wall hangings and knitted creations. In the process, we’ll also make our own tools: knitting needles from chopsticks, a drop spindle from CDs, and a cardboard loom. Discover fiber arts as an ancient skill to be enjoyed by anyone, using everyday household objects as resources. Impact: Our wool will come from Pacific Northwest sheep as we strengthen our connection to the source of our fabrics and our ability to create the beautiful and the useful.

We’ll walk through the process of envisioning your design, selecting the right materials, putting it all together, and of course showing it off! Leave with the skills to create your own unique wardrobe, and inspiration for more. Everyone will create their own upcycled garment or outfit which is an expression of themselves, and show it off to their friends and families on the last day. Impact: Used clothing is reinvented as new to you, reducing demand for new consumer goods while learning new skills and expanding your wardrobe.
