Workshop: Creating a Community Quilt

Saturday, April 13, 2013 at 2 p.m.
Martha A. and Robert S. Rubin Pavilion, 1st Floor

Take part in the design and creation of a community quilt inspired by the exhibition "Workt by Hand": Hidden Labor and Historical Quilts. Working with the Harlem-based cultural arts institute Harlem Needle Arts, participants will learn various stitching techniques and create quilt blocks to contribute to a quilt that will be on view in the Brooklyn Public Library (Central Library), at 10 Grand Army Plaza, from June 13 to August 31. A guided tour of the exhibition will be included, and participants will take home a kit to produce additional squares. There is a $15 materials fee for non-Members, and registration is required at (718) 501-6233 or adult.programs@brooklynmuseum.org.
