MAKE: February

February 20, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM

On the third Thursday of each month, collaborate with artists and makers, explore unique themes and re-think materials through creative design projects. 

This February, interact with hands-on projects, community discussions and film that support current MCD exhibition Linda Gass: and then this happened…. From climate change to community and creativity– there will be something for everyone to explore.

Local artist Windy Chien joins MAKE to sign copies of her book, “The Year of Knots,” and to lead guests in crafting a delightful favorite– the doughnut knot!

PLUS Join artist and filmmaker Andrew Purchin for an experiment in dialogue and collaborative craft, featuring his award-winning short documentary, The Curious Scroll.  Participants will tie the physical scroll from the film into a knot while brainstorming creative design solutions for SF’s housing crisis.

Windy Chien works at the intersection of function, design, history, and aesthetics to illuminate what is most fascinating about knots: the journey of the line. Her sculpture ranges in size from a knot that can fit in the palm of a child’s hand to majestic, room-sized installations. Following long careers at Apple and in the music industry, she launched her studio in 2015. Chien’s clients include IBM, the National Geographic Society, Facebook, and the Kering Group, and her work has been covered by Wired, the New York Times and Martha Stewart.
