Sewing by Hand - Exploring Fibers
In this class we will explore the fibers that are used to create the clothes we wear. We will explore: silk, flax, cotton, and wool. We will discuss how these textiles were traditionally made, who made them, and how they were used. We will compare and contrast these processes to the synthetic fibers that are found in our closets today. Students will embroider and sew small projects for each fiber mentioned. Our projects will include:
Silk: scarf or hankie
Flax/Linen: lavender sachet
Cotton: eye pillow
