Raw Fibers P Credit class: Today’s featured fabric arts

All week we’ve been posting examples of some of our favorite fabric arts in preparation for our Raw Fibers P Credit class for DOE teachers, which starts April 9th. Today our fabric arts come courtesy of MFTA donor the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
