Exhibition-Related Workshops 

How are we shaped by culture and how does the culture we create impact the world? Can creation be substantive and irresponsible, comic and sublime, violent and restorative, selfish and giving? Participants will reflect on who they are as creators and consumers of culture through a hands-on screenprinting workshop and exhibition tour of Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley: Blood Moon.
$10 per person

The Blood Moon can symbolize embracing change, restoring balance, and healing wounds. Participants will begin with a tour of Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley: Blood Moon, then head to our print studio to create their own monoprinted moon prints, exploring what the blood moon might mean in their own life.
$10 per person

I am a squash and you are a squash
In their current exhibition at the Fabric Workshop and Museum, Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley present characters with pumpkin heads, transformed by black and white makeup and costumes. These pumpkin-headed characters become a new lens for seeing ourselves and our world. Imagine yourself anew through a tour of Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley: Blood Moon followed by an interactive screenprinting workshop in our print studio.
$10 per person


Screenprinting Process Workshops: 

Empty Screen, Open Heart
FWM would like to offer the opportunity for visitors to utilize screen printing techniques using an empty screen. This process is ideal for expressing personal messages and singular ideas. Groups of 10 or less can learn from FWM staff how to use transfer techniques, mono printing, and paper cut stencils to imagine their own design. Each participant will leave with one printed tote bag and multiple paper prints. 
 $10 per person 

Print and Process at The Fabric Workshop and Museum
How do different artists deepen our understanding of the world around us? How do they collaborate with FWM to design and create works using innovative technology and traditional techniques? Our museum educators will lead you on a tour of the galleries and the studios, providing a sneak peek at the in-process work for upcoming exhibitions and how an artist’s ideas develop and change through collaboration and experimentation. Visitors will also tour FWM’s professional print studio, learn about the screenprinting process, and create their own screenprinted project inspired by our current artists in residence. 
$10 per person

Soft Moons in the Garden
Stories by the Yard is an interactive storytelling event and hands-on art workshop for young children, school groups, camps, and families.  Stories by the Yard tells the story of an artist’s life and practice, and what they created in collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum.
