Summer camp again at the Carlos Museum on the Emory University Campus. I love that place. I will teach two weeks of an exciting program we call "Weaving the Sun". One week with younger children and then repeated with an older group, we spin, dye, weave and embroider using techniques, motifs and inspirations from the ancient peoples of South America.
The children also get to visit the galleries to see some of the artifacts from the cultures, and pieces are brought into the classroom for a closer look.
This year has been exciting because I have been expanding the programs I can offer at the museum, and I am working with their education department to produce some dyeing workshops --I taught an indigo program connected to some African fabrics installed in the museum - and am working on a week-long summer camp, to be called "Summertime Blues".
