1:00 pm –3:30 pm
Greene Family Education Center
Join us for a studio workshop inspired by the intersection of industrial design and handcraft as seen in Stephen Burks: Shelter in Place. We will begin by visiting the exhibition, where we will examine the ways that Burks brings together principles of design and handcrafted objects to enrich our relationship with domestic space. We will then create woven objects using colorfully dyed rattan, inspired by Burks’s palette, techniques, and designs. Each participant will be given the option to create a decorative bowl or a larger, pendant light shade and will bring a little “joyful living” back home.
Studio Sessions are designed for adults, but all ages are welcome. Materials will be provided. No prior experience is necessary. This workshop is offered twice.
