Recipient Spotlight: Mrs. Ferguson from Beach Channel School

These fabric squares were created by students, this week the students are combining the individual squares to form a quilt

Yesterday we received an email from Mrs. Ferguson, a teacher in Queens, who showed us the great ways she is integrating fabric from Materials from the Arts and knowledge from our workshops with her classroom learning standards.  Mrs. Ferguson and her colleague Mrs. Nanty had their students create individual works of art from fabric featuring poetry and artwork created with a batik technique learned in our Raw Fibers workshop.  This week the students will be combining their individual pieces to form a quilt on a bulletin board in the school.  Their project is a wonderful way to showcase reuse and to create a visual representation of community within the school.  Kudos from the MFTA team!

We are offering a wide range of educational programming this school year.  Teachers, after-school providers and those interested in the arts are encouraged to attend workshops that teach topics from bookmaking to no-sew costumes.
