I don't have to come up with a concept, write a class description or shop for supplies. Sometimes I need to make a sample but that is about the extent of it besides teaching the actual students.
Our Lady of Grace, OLG ers to me, stopped by the Textile Center for a tour and a class. I taught them of my favorites...
Using fabric crayons the students drew their monsters on paper.
Then we (thanks Kyle) ironed them onto felt.
We cut them out with a backing, stuffed and stitched them together.
I always take away something from my classes. A new perspective on life, an encounter with new type of personality or a funny quip.
This one little guy was completely unforgetable. He was concentrating so hard on his sewing his tougne was hanging out of his mouth. I said, "He buddy, you're drooling?"
He very seriously responded, "It's my hobby."
