    Hiiiiiii again!!! Is this even where I am supposed to post? Ok well I decided I think for this group I would like to teach the class to needle felt. I can get needles for the class and probably the felt roving too. Is that cool with everybody?

    When do we work out timing and stuff for this kind of thing??

    i heart needle felting…i know kent and jennie wanna screen print, and I was interested in really simple applique. I can bring sewing needles and thread and fabric, if we ask people to bring scissors. Maybe they could applique on the shirts before we print them? Oh, and I can totally type up an outline if y’all want between 430 and 6 tomorrow. just put some stuff up here yo!

    from jasmine
    I would like to teach the class how to needle felt. I can provide a very small amount of roving for every students and a felting needle. I also have a enough foam for each person in the class to have a very small piece. There things are the only real materials I will need for my demo. I have already ordered the felting needles for the class…
    For the demo, I will teach the class the basic techniques, the history of felting if I can research it enough, and hopefully how to make one three dimensional small scale wool fiber sculpture. I am also planing to include possible lesson plan ideas for this material and a number of references for the class to review.

    Hope this is cool and makes sense–let me know if I missed anything!
    ~THANK YOU!!!

      i have a power point on screen printing i made years back. i can show that if it works into it all. it’s short.

      i think kent had mentioned a field trip for the class to the printmaking studio at columbus bldg. i’m not volunteering that as an option, but i think that’s what he had mentioned. if that doesn’t work out, the option for the class to meet at jean and i’s place in rogers park is on the table. i could show how i do screen printing diy style. everyone bring a t-shirt, create a design before hand, have the screens prepped, explain the process, and print.

    Hey y’all lemme know what you think
    Katie, Kent, Jasmine, Jennie, and Brittanie
    11/17/2010 Fiber/Sewing/Felting/Screen print Proposal

    This is still a rough outline, but here is our tentative plan.
    Kent has offered to let us into the screen printing studio on campus. If that does not work, Jennie has also offered her house in Rogers Park, where we can approach screen printing from a more DIY perspective. There would be some prep work for the class the week before. Everyone would need to bring a tee shirt (Brittanie has some extras if people forget), create a design, and have screens prepped (Maybe we could go over this quickly the week before and open up a blog discussion for any questions). On the day we are actually printing, we would explain the process more thoroughly and then print. Jennie has offered to create a powerpoint to help explain the process.
    Before printing, Brittanie proposed a quick demonstration of appliqué using a running stitch. She can bring fabric scraps, needles, and possibly thread. To integrate the stitching process with the printing process, we think students in the class could sew a small appliqué design somewhere on the tee shirt before printing. We want to keep it small because the act of stitching takes a lot of time to explain and to complete. Brittanie can also bring photocopied diagrams of the particular stitch we will be using, as it is easier for some people to learn stitching through this diagrammatic method than through listening and watching the actual stitch happen.
    Jasmine wants to work with needle felting. She can provide a very small amount of roving for every student and a felting needle. She also has a enough foam for each person in the class to have a very small piece. She has already ordered felting needles for the class. For the demo, Jasmine will teach the class the basic techniques, the history of felting if she can research it enough, and hopefully how to make one three dimensional small scale wool fiber sculpture. She is also planning to include possible lesson plan ideas for this material and a number of references for the class to review.
    This is subject to change, but it is what we have so far!
