Mobile MakeArt: LightHouse for the Blind

March 7 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired

The Museum of Craft and Design partners with the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired to facilitate monthly art projects reflective of MCD’s current exhibitions.

Artist, designer, and crafts-person Saorise Byrne brings the ancient art of cordage to the Lighthouse! 

Humans have been making cordage for at least fifty thousand years. It is how we have shaped the world around us, using fibers to adapt and thrive. Cordage is accessible even to those who would not consider themselves artists or crafty. The process is simple and repetitive in a way that leaves room for conversation, laughter, and contemplation.

Join us and come away with an understanding of how to turn the materials in your life into beautiful and useful lengths of cord, whether to wrap a gift, hang as a garland or to wear as a necklace.

This program is designed specially for the blind and visually impaired community. We welcome you to the LightHouse even if you are not currently involved with the organization. Please reach out to MCD Programs Manager Marie Deininger or LightHouse Adult Programs Coordinator Maia Scott for more information.
