Netsuke are small carvings worn in traditional  Japanese dress to attach articles to the sash of a kimono.

Let's make our own netsuke! We'll create these small ornaments using a faux ivory polymer clay technique. Then we'll create a mixed media diorama for them.

Art quilts and

twinchies

Art quilts use an art form that uses both modern and traditional quilting techniques to create art objects. Practitioners of quilt art create it based on their experiences, imagery, and ideas rather than traditional patterns.

We'll make our own miniature art quilt -- a 2-inch version called a "twinchie".  Twinchies can be used as pendants, magnets, or displayed as art. We'll probably only have time to complete one, but you'll take home the supplies to create 3.
