Usually it is an art class and my friend, who teaches it, was thinking Monet?, Degas? But then she thought, ok, if the world ends tomorrow and we get left behind, is all the knowledge of the Impressionists going to matter? Perhaps, something more practical, she thought. And so, today's class.
She got the idea from Studio Five. Recycled Mittens! Kind of a misnomer, as it is old wool sweaters that are getting recycled into fleece with which to make the mittens. Leiko brought an old fleece jacket to work with for material and off they went, cutting out the pattern.
There is a video of the process here. I tried to embed it but I couldn't, sorry.
