LOCATION: ART ACCESS WORKSHOP
Kids can make their very own lovey! Under the guidance of textile artist, Virginia Catherall, they will design, stuff, stich, decorate and personalize a unique character, which is sure to become a family heirloom.
Participants will learn how to do simple stitching such as sewing on a button, the whip stitch, and the French knot. Students will then learn how to stitch up the character with a backing and stuff it to create a lovey. They will get the chance to work with a needle, thimble, thread, fabric markers, and scissors. Embellishments such as buttons, ric rac, ribbons and appliques will be provided.
