Moss & Marsh
Textile Arts Camp!
Regular price $325.00
Does your child love to create?! Do they dream of sewing and making artisan crafts? Candace, owner of Moss & Marsh and textile designer, is excited to host the first Textile Arts Camp at the Love Lane Rainbow House! In this camp, students will learn a variety of fabric design methods and create a finished project each day. At the end of the week, they will get to take home their own mini sewing machine, tapestry loom, and projects.
June 29-July 3, 10am-3pm, open to boys and girls ages 7-18
We have updated our procedures for this camp in accordance to the COVID 19 protocol. Please read the details below.
Day 1: Learn to Sew!
Each student will get to know their new mini machine. They will learn how to thread it, sew a straight stitch, stitch fabric together, create a ruffle and hem. They will make a heart or star pouf keychain.
Day 2: Shibori & Batik!
Students will learn these ancient forms of Japanese and Indonesian resist dyeing. They will dye a tea towel and 1/2 yard of fabric that they will turn into a pillow.
Day 3: Felting!
On day three students will make fabric from wool. They will create a felt bowl, a felt landscape painting, and experiment with needle felting.
Day 4: Tapestry!
On their own mini loom, each student will design and weave their own wall hanging tapestry.
Day 5: Printing!
On the final day of camp, students will create their own printing blocks and get to try screen printing. They will design a repeated pattern and print fabric that they will sew into a tote bag.
All materials are included in the price of the camp. Campers should bring their own lunch. Only 10 spots available. Email Candace at email@example.com for questions.
COVID 19 Protocols
- Campers will be given their own tools to use instead of sharing.
- Campers will be spread out in the work room.
- Campers will regularly sanitize hands throughout the day.
- Campers will learn and have fun!PARENT PROMISE:
- Each camper must be certified by a parent or legal guardian, to have been free from a specific list of Covid-19 symptoms in the previous 72 hours, and have received a temperature screening by camp staff. This must be done every day. Forms are provided for the certification by parents – cut out and use one for each day of camp.
- Campers with conditions that place them at elevated risk must receive clearance from their health care provider in order to attend camp. This CDC site explains who is at elevated risk.
- Parents must remain in vehicles during drop off and pickup of campers.
- Campers must bring their own lunch and a water bottle to use throughout the day.
- We will not have our normal closing ceremony with families and friends on Friday. This is sad, but we will provide every camper (or family) with a drop box of pictures taken that week at camp.
