The first time we did this project it was declared a rousing success! This project will definitely tap into your inner 8 year old's sense of joy. There is nothing quite so magical as the colorful patterns made with a kaleidoscope. Join us in the Clubhouse to create your very own with mirrors, tubes and colorful beads.

We will have some beads for you to use, but feel free to bring your own! They can be any color and size, just make sure they're clear.

May 31 - Gold Leaf Taxidermy!
31May

We love shiny things. We can't think of a better or more creative way than a faux taxidermy plaque covered in gold leaf to show that love. Everyone will get a hollow plastic animal and a wood plaque base to create their trophy. Gold leaf is fairly easy to work with, but we'll show you some tips and tricks for successful use. Feel free to bring your own object for your trophy, just make sure it's hollow plastic.

June 16 - Indigo Dye!
16June

Dress down for this one folks, it may get messy!

This week in the clubhouse we're going to be playing with indigo dye! Once called blue gold, this oldest of dyes was a rare luxury. You are all familiar with the synthetic version of the indigo plant that is used to dye our blue jeans. The natural version of this process holds a little bit of funk and a little bit of magic.

We'll explore some resist methods and some techniques borrowed from the japanese tradition of Shibori, to create patterns on our fabric.

We'll provide the dye bath, gloves and pieces of white cotton muslin. Bring your own white fabric or a t-shirt to dye if you'd like. Make sure it is 100% plant or animal fibers (cotton, silk, wool, etc), no synthetics for this one.

We'll be using a special soft material for our stamps that is easy to work with and super fast to carve. This method works great for printing on paper, but we're also going to print on fabric!
