Fabric needed for art camp

This summer, the Waynesville Recreation Center has partnered with the Haywood County Arts Council to offer a week-long art camp from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 19-23. The camp is for rising third through seventh graders. The Haywood County Arts Council is seeking fabric donations for a portion of the week-long experience. 

Fabric needed is as follows:

• For the warp: preferably lightweight knit fabrics, in long lengths (three to four yards). 

• For the weft: prints, plaids, florals, anything colorful will do. Again, longer lengths are better, two to three-yard pieces. 

They will accept fabrics in cottons, rayons, knits, wools, and others. 

The donated fabric will be used for an end-of-camp special project led by local fiber artist Suzanne Gernandt. She will lead the camp students through a “human loom” exercise, where the students become the loom and shuttle. 

Drop off donated fabrics at the Haywood County Arts Council at 86 North Main Street in Waynesville. They will accept donations through June 14. 

The Haywood County Arts Council is a nonprofit agency that serves all artists and arts organizations in Haywood County.
