The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) Studio has recently been immersed in a world of pumpkin heads and black-and-white trompe l’oeil, brought to life in the costumes and sets created for Blood Moon, our fall exhibition featuring work by Artists-in-Residence Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley. Join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of our studio to discover the collaborative and experimental processes involved in screenprinting patterns, trompe l’oeil painting parties, and molding pumpkin heads. Then, head to our print studio to screenprint your own tote bag with glow-in-the-dark ink for Halloween treats and all your nighttime adventures!

Presented in partnership with DesignPhiladelphia.
