We have spaces left in each of our workshops on Saturday, February 25. Spend your morning in the Museum, learning and creating!
Learn to Knit • Saturday, February 25, 10–12:30 a.m.
Have you always wanted to learn to knit? This workshop is for you!
Designed for the beginner, in this workshop you will learn casting on, knitting, purling and binding off. Each participant will start a simple scarf, and receive a set of needles to take home with them. Taught by Katherine Diuguid, a recent graduate of the Masters of Art + Design from NC State University and an active artist/designer and teacher. Open to ages 14–adult. More info, including registration instructions here.
Mixed Media Sculpture • Saturday, February 25, 10–12:30 a.m.
In this middle school workshop, students will work collaboratively to create mixed-media sculptures. Cayce Lee, a Raleigh-based artist and educator and current graduate student NC State University College of Design, will lead the workshop. The current exhibitions on view, Born Digital, and Chris Bradley–Close One (which opens on February 24) will serve as a jumping off point, inspiring the students as they use a variety of materials (found, repurposed, and some new) to complete their sculptures. Open to grades 6–8. More info, including registration instructions here.
