The Fabric Workshop and Museum returns to Parkway Pals at Sister Cities Park this summer! Join us at our table every Wednesday from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, June 14–August 16 for new activities exploring this theme:

What We Have in Who We Are

How can we see art in who we are, where we are, and what we already have? Inspired by Henry Taylor: Nothing Change, Nothing Strange, explore the resources within yourself and within your city through printing, painting, assemblage, collage, map making, and mending with educators from FWM. We’ll have a new project each week so come back again and again! 

This Week: Slop Bucket Tree Prints

At FWM we save all our ink from workshops and print projects so that it doesn’t enter the waste stream. When the ink mixes in the slop buckets, it turns shades of brown, green, and maroon. These are the perfect colors to make tree prints! Join us under the trees at Sister City Park and create your own tree print.
