“Ella had an absolutely fantastic time at camp last week, she has been talking about it all week and is excited to go back. She went through all of her treasures for almost two hours on Friday afternoon – the kids made such amazing stuff! We found a spot for her beautiful tree on our mantle and she’s been continuing to make decorations for it. She’s been talking about getting it ready for Christmas, which will be so cute. Her succulents found special spots around the house and we put up a special hook for the two capes. Each day, she came home with great stories and ideas excited to do more art! It’s been incredible for her to get out and be with other kids in that amazing space after so many months at home. I feel like it was great preparation for back to school too. Looking forward to seeing all the things they make next week!”

Nature silkscreening and sewing with Miko!

week 1:  Printmaking on fabric

Miko will demonstrate silkscreening techniques using leaves to create unique printed designs on fabric. Experimenting with brayers, stamp prinitng and coloured inks to create their own designed fabrics!

week 2: Sewing

Using their own printed fabric from week 1, children will transform their work into a creation of their own choosing, using real sewing machines! The direction of the sewn project will be child-led, whether they want to transform their printed fabric into pillows, wall hangings on stuffies, Miko will gently guide young artists, to produce a work of fiber art entirely from their own vision.

About the Artist

LilTreeandMe

How "Lil Tree & Me" came to be....Lil Tree is my first daughter Sequoia who came along at just the point when I needed her most. It was 2013 when she was born and she soon became my muse for designing handmade clothing and dolls. My love for creating for my children has evolved into a business that has taken me to shows and festivals across Ontario and made my life so much more meaningful in the process.
