Ancient Arts Fiber Camp
Session 1: July 8 - 12
Session 2: August 5 - 9
M-F, 9am - 3pm, $300/week
Ancient Arts Fiber Camp is for youth 8-11 years old. The focus is on fiber arts with materials directly from nature - "wild chemistry" for natural dyeing with whole plants and leaf printing on fabric, wool felting, rock drop spindles, and spider weaving (circular looms).
Crafts are whole-process, not just "finish work", and designed to match students' level of hand skills and focus. Many materials are harvested on-site from our gardens.
Free choice activities take place on our patio shaded by a squash vine arbor, in our treehouse, in the shade of the fig tree, or in our green open space.
Rest time can also happen on the shaded patio, in the treehouse, under the fig tree, or in our bean cave.
Daily story time, the transition into rest time, features picture books related to the themes of Ancient Arts Fiber Camp - young people engaging with the natural world in a creative and mutually-beneficial way.
