Square Queen

A weaving activity for kids ages 9 to 12.

Inspired by the book Home by the illustrator Carson Ellis, this art workshop will be a reflection on the idea of home. Children will ponder what makes a dwelling-place– what kind of particular color, texture and form does it have? They will learn how to weave on small cardboard looms.

The workshop will be held outside. It will be postponed in case of rain.
