I just got off the phone with Brady, a fellow crafter and the Public Programs Manager at The Amon Carter Museum. She was nice enough to take the time to chat with me about this event series and what the evening will hold for those interested in attending.
This will be their 2nd "Crafting from the Collection" event which is FREE and features a tour of 3 or 4 featured works of art. They will provide sketching paper and pencils at the event, or you can bring your own sketch pad and paper. Important to note: Pens are not allowed.
After viewing the art and discussion, there will be a crafting demo focused on a featured project, followed by some free time for socializing and refreshments. The demos at these events are taught by several people people to insure project variety. At the last event, they learned how to make some folded fabric flowers. Another important note: Other than the demo, crafting supplies are not allowed in the museum.
This sounds like a great opportunity to get out of the house, learn a new craft, meet fellow local crafters, and get inspired! So, go check it out and see what inspires you.
Don't forget to send your finished crafty project pictures to email@example.com so they can be featured on the Amon Carter Museum's Fan Page!
