(Canceled) Vital + Creative Workshop: Basket Weaving with Baling Straps for Creatives 55+
This event has ended. It was scheduled for 2/15/2024.
10:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15First Floor, Education Wing, Reynolds Classroom
Since 2012, Hawai'i-based artist Gaye Chan has foraged plastic baling straps and developed a weaving technique to make containers while learning a basic skill practiced around the globe: basket-making. Chan’s basketmaking practice extends the life of an otherwise single-use material through craft and skill sharing.
Join us for a basket-making workshop for adults 55 years and older led by community partners and museum staff trained in Chan’s technique. Materials provided. Space is limited, registration required. Free.
Looking to try a new medium or hone your creativity? Join in on Vital + Creative workshops, for creatives ages 55+ to make art in community with others. Themes change monthly.
Note: Can’t make this session? This workshop is part of a series of basket-making workshops, in connection with our exhibition, How to Survive. Keep an eye out for future dates.
