Representing the human figure in cloth is at the heart of many folk-art traditions. Evocative, whimsical, or profound, creating a likeness is a creative pathway for exploring ideas of character and self. Students will form a human figure cut from cloth, lovingly stitched together by hand, stuffed, clothed, and embellished using a variety of materials such as fabric, threads, fabric paints, pens, beads, and buttons.
