We hope to resume our MAKE after-hours evenings in April.

We appreciate your understanding and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us at info@sfmcd.org.

Brighten up your living space with a beautiful hanging kokedama moss ball plant, learn the sustainable mending technique “sashiko,” try your hand at intro to leathercraft, make an eco patch and practice tie dye techniques. 

PLUS enjoy a super Dogpatch-centric culinary experience making DIY mustards using Magnolia Brewing Co. beer paired with homemade pretzels from MCD’s neighbors, Daily Driver.

Join MCD and artist Linda Gass for a hands-on deep dive into current exhibition, Linda Gass: and then this happened….

Gass’s exhibition displays beautiful and legible artistic representations of sobering data that records human interaction with the natural environment. Her work uses exacting processes of silk dyeing and stitching to represent topography, urban space, and nature. 

Hear more about Linda’s extensive research and unique process, sip on happy hour beverages during a creative process demo and then try your hand at silk painting based on map designs of the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity for creative interaction with an MCD exhibiting artist!

Special thanks to our in-kind materials sponsor, Jacquard Products

Light snacks and happy hour beverages provided.
