MCD MakeArt Family Day: June

This month, delve into some of the themes and materials of Material Domestication!

Join guest instructors from Green Art Workshop to learn about the role textiles have played in women’s history through the art of embroidery. Embedded in each intricate stitch are stories of social activism and personal expression. Using found fabrics and thread, practice needlework techniques by creating a sampler and begin making a piece that tells your own story.

Explore Nathan Craven’s process of creating ceramic by using a series of clay extruders– including ones you can design yourself!

PLUS: Decorate your Swag Bag and play around with magnetic architecture.

All ages welcome– craft your day with the whole family at MCD!
