About this Class

How do you picture a monster? Does it have two legs? Four? Seven? Does it have sharp teeth or a big gap-toothed grin? We will start the first day by talking about our materials and designing our monsters. Then we will create the monster of your imagination using hand sewing and fabric, felt, ribbon, paint, buttons, and zippers. Remember though, monsters want friends too, so they don't have to be scary!
