A group shot of people participationg in MAKE activities


May 19 @ 5:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Museum of Craft and Design

On the third Thursday of each month, collaborate with artists and makers, explore unique themes, and re-think materials through creative design projects– all happening after-hours in the MCD galleries!

This month, explore The Object in its Place: As Designed by Ted Cohen with an Author Happy Hour featuring Signe Mayfield, author of the book that inspired the exhibition! Get your book signed and hear from Signe about how the documentation of Ted’s legacy came to fruition.

Then get hands-on in the galleries with a mini glass sculpture design challenge, harness Ted Cohen’s power of light design with DIY suncatchers, create a museum marquee-inspired sign using upcycled Blow Up Lab display materials, and craft your own cabinet of curiosity for holding whatever collections you hold dear! Live acoustic music provided by Birdsong, for the special ambiance of an evening at Ted’s residence. 

Step into Living with Scents to take a break and take a breath with a Lightbrush x TidalFire interactive spacial projection, DIY grounding bracelets, and MNDFL coin giveaway!


Pre-registration is encouraged. All activities are free with admission.
Tickets: $10 General Admission, $8 for Students and Seniors, MCD members FREE.
