 Coiling is an internationally practiced craft and art form. This class introduces coiling variations so that students will have samples from which to build larger pieces. Functional objects that can be made using this technique include containers, table and floor mats, hats, jewelry, purses, even garments, armor, and masks!  Supplies can include yarn, string, rope, fabric strips, any flexible material: tubes, hoses, wire, grasses, shoelaces and more. Coiling requires a single simple tool, minimal hand strength and dexterity and offers limitless possibilities for functional and sculptural object-making. A range of sampling supplies will be provided.  A tool fee of $4 will be collected at the beginning of class. Open to students ages 15 years and up. Younger students can attend if accompanied by a participating adult. No experience necessary.
