Weird, Wild and Wonderful Creatures (Textile Art) (in person) | Minneapolis College of Art and Design

Weird, Wild and Wonderful Creatures (Textile Art) (in person)

 Invent your own critters and stitch them into soft sculptures. Ages 9-12

Design, draw pattern templates, cut, stitch, stuff, and embellish soft sculpture creatures! The focus of this class is stitching and sewing construction. Each day sewing techniques are introduced to students, from simple to complex stitches and embroidery. Students are supported in translating their two-dimensional designs into three-dimensional soft sculptures. Students have time to make multiple creatures in this week-long class. No previous sewing skills needed! At the end of the week, families and friends are invited to view the students’ work in a group exhibition.

Open to students ages 9–12. MCAD strictly adheres to these age guidelines and is unable to allow exceptions. Please review our complete Summer Youth Camps Policies as well as our General Policies before completing your registration. Covid policies and protocols and information about extended care options through Children's Theatre Company are included in the Summer Youth Camps Policies page.
