There are flying geese at the Arts Center. And a log cabin. And a bear’s paw. They’re all hanging out together on the first floor.
Okay, full disclosure: they’re quilt patterns. Matching up quilt patterns with their (often funky) names is one of the activities in the Quilting Discovery Lab.
After admiring the work of quilter Joni Morgan – on display in the Grand Hall – Arts Center visitors are encouraged to stop by the Quilting Discovery Lab for hands-on, quilt-related activities. Visitors can create a fabric scrap collage, experiment with new quilt patterns, try their hand at stitching embellishments, identify quilt patterns, create quilt designs on the light table, or share a story about a quilt that has special meaning to them.
There are a range of activities appropriate for every age, from young children through adults.
The activities in the Quilting Discovery Lab were made possible by a grant from the Hudson-Ellis Funds. We are excited to be offering for more hands-on activities that support our exhibits, thanks to the support of this great community partner!
