Maker Morning at the Museum: A Patchwork Family Program


Join us for a special family workshop, presented in collaboration with our friends Erin Hanehan and A Great Good Space to celebrate the closing weekend of Layered Legacies: Quilts from the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts at Old Salem.

Just as a quilt is pieced together from different fabrics, this family program brings together hands-on art making, yoga story time, and a community quilting project that gives participants young and old the tools to share their feelings out loud. Families will explore quilts as a jumping off point to connect with themselves and their loved ones, participate in a movement-centered story time led by Erin Hanehan, and use our Community Threads makerspace as a place to explore creativity and self-expression with a guided art-making experience facilitated by A Great Good Space. Plus, take a collaged work of art home with you and contribute your own work to a community quilt on view at the Museum.

This program is best for children ages 3 and up and their grown-ups.
