Spring at the Gardner | Weekend of Apr. 27-28
Join us for an introduction to the craft of embroidery. Studio educators will teach basic stitches that you can use on fabric and felt. Using floral templates drawn from textiles in the Gardner collection, we will stitch Renaissance-style compositions with a contemporary twist. This activity is recommended for visitors 13 and up. No pre-registration is required, but space is limited.
Hands-on art-making activities are supported in part by the Josephine and Louise Crane Foundation, the Caleb C. and Julia W. Dula Educational & Charitable Foundation, and The Yawkey Foundation. The Museum receives operating support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
