with The Art of The Craft workshop on September 18 and 25. Participants learned about quilting: the history and mechanics; then explored works of art with themes of family and community from The Met’s collections; then shared their own stories of family and community. The connections led to collaborative poetry quilts which were then put together to form a community poetry quilt. A heartwarming success! Families from both generations came together to share the connections made, perceptions changed and to witness the empowerment people from all generations felt. The Met Studios were filled with three generations coming together!
