This is Math Week? Wait a minute…what?? Math in the summer?? You heard me! You can’t design or sew anything without math! All of fashion design and quilt design is based on math such as geometry and trigonometry. Campers will flex those math skills this week by learning how to do backwards planning to plan their designs; use addition, subtraction and fractions to figure out the exact dimensions of each part of their designs; problem solve; and learn to measure while prepping their materials. Campers and parents will be amazed with their math skills and how easily they are able to apply them to a real-life experience!

The Fiber Arts Workshop is a fun way for your child to explore their creativity three-dimensionally using fibers and textiles. Each week will explore different techniques and campers who are taking more than one week can build upon the skills they have learned in previous weeks.

Techniques will include textile dyeing, printing on fabric, embroidery, machine sewing, sewable circuits and more! In essence, the campers will learn to make fabric before turning it into a bag, pillow, skirt, wall hanging, etc. This year we will be exploring the science of botanical dyes, adding technology to our creations with sewable circuits, learning about engineering through fabric manipulation, and honing math skills through quilting! 

The workshop camp runs for a one week but campers are free to sign up for more than one week as projects will vary. 10% discount for multiple weeks, use code MULTIWEEK.
