The Fabric Workshop and Museum returns to Parkway Pals at Sister Cities Park this summer!

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! 

Today’s Activity: Quilts bring different fabrics together to create a new story made up of color, pattern, and texture! Use the frottage technique to create textured shapes that can be collaged together into your own texture quilt!
