Family Studio Art Workshop: Threading Stories
Celebrate Women’s History Month in a mixed-media workshop created by Teaching Artist-in-Residence David Enriquez and inspired by huipiles, a traditional, loose-fitting blouse crafted in Tehuantepec, Mexico, by women and muxes, or third-gender individuals. Explore textile fiber as a medium and create a miniature version of the community hilorama, or string art, on view in Greene Education Center. Use thread to create a small artwork with patterns of your own design by weaving the thread on a loom made of cardboard.
Recommended for ages 5+.
