Make colorful and fun sock monkeys and other creatures
We will start with colorful socks and the basic format of the traditional sock monkey construction, finding inspiration in the world around us, from various sculptures and animals. Through soft sculpture techniques we establish form; our interpretation of animal characteristics makes each creation totally unique. Patterns and suggestions will be provided with plenty of room for individual creativity. Students may create two or more creatures by the end of the week. Range of sewing experiences welcome; we are all going to have a good time!
