Use the ancient art of weaving to create something new or repair something old. Make a beautiful new wall-hanging and/or bring worn-out clothes you’ll learn to repair. These free, drop-in workshops in Sticks, the Park’s outdoor education area, are tailored for kids and their families but all ages are welcome to participate.
