Family Day Weekend 2017

We are thrilled to partner with the Museum of Anthropology to co-present engaging programming for the Family Day Weekend! We are offering events at both ArtStarts and at MOA over the long weekend.

The Magic of Making Cloth
Workshop with Rebecca Graham

Ongoing 10am to 1pm. Admission is free.

Participants in this workshop will receive free admission to MOA for one adult per group!

From the day we are born until the day we die we are all wrapped in cloth. Join us to discover the magic of cloth making!

Families are invited to join artist Rebecca Graham to play with spinning loose fibres into long, strong yarns, and weaving on a simple loom. Discover a variety of different tools and materials—you'll be amazed at the skill and ingenuity of our ancestors from all over the world!

Come to the workshop wearing your favourite piece of clothing. You can bring any piece of cloth that has important meaning to you.

While at the ArtStarts Gallery, explore a special MOA pop-up exhibition featuring imagery from the brand new textile exhibition Layers of Influence: Unfolding Cloth Across Cultures. Families will also have the opportunity to engage with Chilkat weavings and materials from the Tsimshian culture.
