Chicken Cube for the Soul | Crafty Creations at The Handwork Studio

How do the sayings go?  No two chicken cubes are alike?  Or, "Is a chicken cube but a chicken cube by any other beak?"  These are deep questions we ponder at The Handwork Studio... 

What I am trying to say, is that when ever we introduce a new project we have an example of what it will look like in the end, this is so everyone can see and understand what they will be making. After six years of running classes at The Handwork Studio, I am still amazed everytime in the way each person interprets the same pattern.    

Over spring break camp this year our Curriculum Director, Melissa Haims designed one of my favorite projects of all time, Bouillon, the Cube Chicken.  This funny creation is basically six squares sewn together to create its cube structure.  What really makes this project interesting is that Buillion does not come to life until you add all the accoutrements.  We provide a shmorgasborg of buttons, embroidery floss, wool roving, felt, etc., etc.  and campers go to town.  All of sudden our plain old cube starts taking on a life of its own.  I will let the pictures speak for themselves to show what a little imagination can turn into.
