Admission Purchase general admission

Drop in and join this upcycling workshop offered over the course of four weekends, led by Teaching Artist-in-Residence Natalya Khorover and inspired by Order / Reorder. Create a large-scale, communal art quilt of the Palisades that is made entirely from recycled single-use plastics.

We invite you to collect rinsed and cleaned shopping bags and any other colorful, soft, and pliable fabric-like single-use plastics from your home and bring them to the Greene Education Center to be used in the artwork. Work with this eco-artist to attain your creative vision while contributing to the health of the planet!
