Saturday Family Workshop

Overview

Young artists will discover the art of loom-building using simple materials sourced from nature, participating in an ancient form of craftsmanship. Using an array of plant-based fibers such as grasses and vines, kids will explore the rich textures of the natural world and fill their loom with simple weaving techniques. Through sensorially rich, hands-on learning, kids will develop a deeper appreciation for sustainable practices and the beauty of handmade creations. They will connect with the natural human instinct to gather available materials and combine them to make something new. Join us for a day of creative exploration and eco-conscious crafting.

Free workshop, registration strongly encouraged to allow instructor for material preparation.
