About the Event
Join us for this after-school series, where we pluck creatures of all shapes, colors and persuasions out of our dreams and imaginations, and coax them into form. Our kid collaborators will be asked to think and rethink their creatures, as we move from paint and clay into sewing, weaving and embroidery to make their own, very personal (stuffed) dream creatures.
March 3 through April 7 (6 sessions)
Thursdays 3:30 to 5PM
$120 / participant
All materials are provided,
Maria Elena Hardman is a Cold Spring local and crafter who has been putting eyes, scarves and hats on things since she was a kid. She enjoys making pretty much everything by hand but especially loves working with fiber. She is a lifelong crocheter and knitter, loves learning new stitches and skills and sharing the knowledge with others!
Alicia Leeds is a potter and the owner of Elephant Belly Pottery in Cold Spring. She is excited to share her love of art, clay and play with her local community.
Grace Lo is the owner of Supplies for Creative Living, an artist, a landscape architect and lover of all creatures. She thinks that making things by hand is magic, and loves tending a shop and work space that shares that love. When she's not wrangling people and things at the shop, she likes to hang out in the woods, at the edge of the sea or in her hammock.
Gail Cunningham O’Donnell is a natural dyer, weaver, quilter and novice knitter who has lived locally for the past 6 years. Originally from Philadelphia, she got her degree in Fibers and Book Arts at Oregon College of Art & Craft in Portland, Oregon. She spent a number of years working as a cut paper artist and showed in galleries both locally and internationally, but in recent years she has returned to her roots in fibers. When she isn’t working at Supplies for Creative Living, she is working on her line of naturally dyed wool yarn, which can be found locally at The Endless Skein.
