Communal Crocheting with Sheila Pepe and Jacob Olmedo
Wed, Sep 8 / 6–7 pm
$15 members and students
Join artist Sheila Pepe and Artist Studios resident Jacob Olmedo for an hour of creative unraveling and crocheting in the exhibition Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times. As part of the sixth edition of New York Textile Month, MAD will be hosting this after-hours, in-gallery workshop, where participants will reuse yarn from Sheila Pepe’s Common Sense, activating and contributing to the site-specific installation’s completion. In addition, Pepe and Olmedo will teach basic crocheting techniques for making circular forms, mirroring the continuous nature of making, un-making, and recreation that forms the heart of Common Sense.
Participants are also invited to enjoy free admission to the Museum prior to the start of the workshop.
