Fiber Mesh Mash
Grade Level: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
A staple for needle crafts, plastic mesh canvas becomes the base for a textural fiber and wire mash-up. An open-ended introduction to fiber art, this lesson provides students with a means to create a base structure. Once this substrate is in place, students follow their own path of exploration and experimentation, discovering the many ways fibers can communicate color, texture, and form.
