Building Hope, in collaboration with BreckCreate, learn about soft sculpture.Not all sculpture consists of the bronze statues you see in town, or the other stone, metal, or ceramic artworks we most often see in public spaces. Artists make sculpture from all kinds of material, even food! In this class we’ll focus on fiber and use fabric and yarn as our main sculpture material. We’ll go over some sewing and assembling strategies, embellishment, and experiment with how a flat pattern changes when transformed into a dimensional creature. Patterns for different creatures will be provided for students to use or alter..
