Happening on the first Saturday of every month, the Museum of Craft and Design’s MakeArt Family Days are half-day-long events designed for visitors of all ages featuring tactile materials introductions for toddlers, guided activities for kids, and in-gallery hands-on opportunities for the whole family.

This month, delve into themes and materials of the “Material Domestication” exhibition. Guest instructors from Green Art Workshop will be teaching about the role textiles have played in women’s history through the art of embroidery. Embedded in each intricate stitch are stories of social activism and personal expression. Using found fabrics and thread, visitors can practice needlework techniques by creating a sampler and begin making a piece that tells their story.

Visitors can explore exhibition artist Nathan Craven’s process of creating ceramic by using a series of clay extruders, including ones you can design yourself.
