Forests & Fibers (with an overnight W-F at Marmot) *FULL*

Join us in this hands-on art camp and experience the joy of making! Create beautiful and useful handcrafted works of art, learning skills like dyeing, paper-making, and bookmaking. We’ll work with sustainable materials, using natural fibers and inspiration from the forest! The week will end with a two-night overnight experience creating works of art and exploring the lush forest at Portland Audubon’s very own Marmot Cabin.

Grades 6-8 meet at Upper Macleay Park, which neighbors Portland Audubon on Cornell Road to the east.
