Habitat client workshop #1

Today was the first of two client workshops for the Habitat for Humanity project. We had a lot of fun today.  12 people who are clients or volunteers with Habitat for Humanity met with me at the Textile Center to make decorated cloth for the project.  This fun afternoon counted toward their sweat equity.
  Children and adults all worked together, stenciling, spraying, glueing and generally having fun.
We used Paint sticks, inktense sticks, shaprie marker, Jaquard paints of various kinds, Crayola fabric crayons, rubber stamps, and laser foil.
Each participant was invited to take one piece home with them.
Look at what they made for the project!  There was such generosity, and talent, in the room.  These pieces will all be dyed and inserted somewhere in the project.  As a special note, almost everyone signed their name somewhere in one of their pieces.  I love the idea of their names secretly hiding in the finished piece.
