Sewing in the studio has been popular lately - a sort of surprise discovery as part of our collage process. Hole punching is always a favorite part of collage and the suggestion that perhaps a string could pass through the holes began a series of sewn collages across several classes and age groups.
Here a length of string is sewn to form a border all around a page.
This sewn collage created additional interest with other collage groups throughout the week.

This young artist punched holes and chose string, telling me as he worked that he wanted a sewing machine....
...then he wouldn't have to do such hard work! And yet, he stuck with the challenge of pulling the length of yarn through each hole, creating a sewn collage that reminded fellow artists of a kite.
