#BLUBIRDTEACHES: MODERN FIBER AT MUSEJAR
LEARN - AUGUST 2020
Our creative collaboration with neighbors at MUSEjar in East Aurora continues to thrive, as we work together to discover new applications of fiber as a medium and encourage new interest in the fiber arts. The individual monthly workshops and intensive series are geared towards helping anyone interested in exploring fiber as a creative medium.
In response to the success of our Mandala School Summer Camp program and to the growing need for safe and small group learning, we're adding Kids Fiber Courses to the monthly class rotation, beginning with our first rollout of Personal Mandala Weaving - the perfect introduction to fiber arts. Enrollment is Live at musejar.com and in order to keep the learning environment as safe as possible, space is limited. Check out the links and sign up today!
Coming in September...Embroidery and Tapestry Necklaces.
Check out the class lineup below, and sign up via link to MJ's website.
See you soon!

PERSONAL MANDALAS - WEAVING FOR KIDS
Kids Weaving! It’s the perfect introduction to fiber art. Students will learn how to warp a handheld circular hoop and weave in the round, creating their own mandala wall hanging using your choice of materials and colors. This 2-hour Saturday morning class is the perfect start to the weekend, and will be held outside in the open-air courtyard classroom behind MJ.
FIBER WRAPPED TASSEL RAINBOWS
We’re making MYO wrapped fibery rainbow wall hangings! In order to ensure smaller hands will be able to complete the project in the time allotted, students will create 4-5 inch 3-tiered rainbows in their own choice of colors. Choose bright bold traditionals or modern neutrals!
JULY SO FAR...
THANK YOU MANDALA SCHOOL!
July was Mandala School's Summer Camp, where we collaborated to find ways to introduce 16 tiny queens to fiber, and it was so much fun. We just wrapped up Weaving Mandalas, after last week's Rainbow Wall Hangings. Teaching the small ones is new for me, but I am already hooked, and we're opening them up to everyone next month - Kids Fiber will be a part of the monthly rotation beginning in August, and both of these are our featured launch.
