Green Art Workshop: Whimsical Weavings

In partnership with Brackett After School Program, a multigenerational weaving workshop, part of their Community theme. This program will blend creative practice with art history and environmental education for students and Arlington residents. Teaching artists will demonstrate how to make colorful, playful weavings utilizing discarded, reusable, recyclable and natural materials, while exploring how textiles have developed and reflected societies throughout the world from Ancient Egypt to New England. Participants will then construct a loom to create a personal textile artwork and contribute to a large-scale collaborative weaving.
