Sunday Studio: Upcycled Loom Weaving with Emily Kenselaar
FREE with museum admission and for members, with advance registration required.
Join us each Sunday for a fun family art-making activity inspired by our current exhibitions. Explore materials, learn new techniques, and meet other community members while enjoying creative time with your family. Each week features a different project designed by MAM Teaching Artists to spark the imagination and encourage conversation in response to artworks on view in museum galleries. This program is aimed at families with children ages 5-12, but all are welcome.
Inspired by the exhibition Woolpunk: Sunflowers & Graffiti'd Sky in the Garden State, families will learn weaving techniques and loom construction using upcycled textiles to create a woven tapestry and explore fiber arts.
