Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, college students, adults and school age children will learn basic skills in the fiber arts and use those skills to create artistic pieces that are not only artistic, but also useful. Evaluation will occur through participant questionnaires, notes taken throughout the experience, numbers participating, and participant self-reflections.
