Woven Wonderland: Creating Art with Fiber and Textiles

From tapestries to mud cloth artists have used textiles to create art for centuries. Now it is your chance to create a Woven Wonderland at the DCCA with textile and fiber-based art projects and gallery games inspired by Susie Brandt’s exhibition, Five Stumps. Teaching Artist Rhonda Ike will lead a felting activity accessible for all ages in the classroom, after which families are invited to take part in a large-scale collaborative fabric installation in the lobby.  Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts, November 20th, 12 P.M.
