Come explore the world of textiles!

This camp immerses students in opportunities to try a variety of techniques for making art with textiles. Campers will learn about dyes from plants and other natural materials, and will experiment with methods such as eco-dyeing fabrics, creating designs in thread and yarn, weaving, specialized stitching, and how to join and manipulate fabric for different effects. Each day’s activities will focus on a new textile process, and campers will take home a variety of creative projects made through explorations with thread, cloth, color, and imagination.

CAMP INSTRUCTOR: Amanda Thatch is a textile artist and educator, originally from Kansas City, Missouri. She holds an MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and worked for several years as the textile studio coordinator at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. She currently lives and works in Detroit, Michigan, but travels widely to teach textile-process workshops. Her art practice emphasizes weaving and natural dyes; view her work at www.amandathatch.com.

CAMP OVERVIEW

Registration: $25

Enrollment: $225

The enrollment fee is waived for campers who otherwise would not be able to participate in Creative Camps.

The Creative Camps enrollment fee covers only part of KANEKO’s expenses. Please consider helping us provide access to all campers by contributing additional support. We’re grateful for your assistance.

Camps are held Monday – Friday from 9AM – 4PM

Students may choose to have their projects included in a final Creative Camps Exhibition at KANEKO.

Lunch and snacks are provided and campers eat outside when possible. If your camper has any dietary restrictions, please let us know during registration.

Camp t-shirts will be provided for each camper- you will be prompted to provide a size when you register. 

Phone-Free Environment: Our goal is to provide all campers with a summer camp experience filled with unique and distraction-free opportunities. All camper’s phones will be checked in each morning.  A short period of phone time is scheduled later each day, but we aim to have a phone-free environment. Campers are always accessible to families through the KANEKO phones.
