Also called curve stitching, this art is usually done on boards with nails. At the jh, we figured how to do it with recycled cardboard and embroidery floss. White kite string was used as well, and dyed with markers and water on a brush. Most students followed patterns from Internet.

Edgefield, SC is the home of face jugs. My students explore this tradition by making their own. We start by viewing a video by PBS called "History Detectives: Face Jug" that explains its history. Then demo and hands on clay. We slab build a cylinder on day one, day 2,3 we add handle and face.
