Open Studio is a drop-in art exploration program for adults, teens, and families. Unlike a traditional class, open studio is a place to experiment with art supplies, with inspiration from art in the Handstitched Worlds: The Cartography of Quilts exhibition. 

We’ll gather together in a quilting bee (it’s like a quilting party!), stitching on a community quilt that will be donated to a shelter. 

This Open Studio for Handstitched Worlds will be on three consecutive first Wednesdays, March 2, April 6, and May 4, 2022. Advance tickets required. Reserve yours  here
