We are looking for a core group of people who can fix stuff, sew stuff and organize stuff. We have old materials which occasionally need a little sanding, a little paint touch-up or a little TLC repair. If this is your kind of fun, let me know. You can do projects at home or we'll set you up with a small group of kids and a student teacher to involve the children.
We also need people who can repair torn parts on doll clothes, mend pillows or sew a hem on a easy "bear" costume. It's always pretty basic.
Finally, we get many of our art closet materials from parent donations. In late October we will gather a sorting group (meeting monthly perhaps for an hour?) who can sort, clean up, prep and generally keep our creative bank of materials from taking over our art closet.
If you're interested in any of these much appreciated roles, please let Frances know. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
PS - While we are open to any sort of material which could be used by children (leftovers from industrial processes, fabric, wood pieces, corks, and natural materials like pine cones, seeds and shells,) we are currently looking for small sturdy boxes (think cosmetics, apple products,) and small sturdy plastic pieces which frequently come in packaging. The photos give you some guidance. Many thanks!
