Create playful, postmodern architectural spaces- soft houses, tilting tents, cozy corners, flying flags, and curving sculptural forms. Children can design extended structures as they slide the dowels through the stitched fabrics or shiny grommets. Experimenting with flexible and rigid materials, children can fold, twist, and reshape the soft fleece-stretching forms and enclosing spaces – and they can construct sturdy geometric forms with the wood dowels and base. Layers of durable net fabrics yield shimmering moire effects.
