Nature Week: Natural Dyes and Stick Mobiles

While teaching with Created by Kids, I taught an off-site studio course at the Greene Hill School Summer Day Camp. Every week we focussed on a new theme. Below are images from NATURE week.

During Nature Week, we learned about where natural dyes come from and what colors can be found in nature. Then we began to dye our own cloth and string using turmeric and indigo to create vivid yellows and blues.

Once we prepared our materials, we began to assemble everything into our own creative mobiles using sticks for the frame, and ceramic beads we had previously made as weights or potential chimes.
