Center Theatre Group will provide free workshops to community members at The Shop located at 2856 E. 11th Street in Boyle Heights, 90023. Center Theatre Group staff will teach crafting techniques with activities that range from puppet making to fabric marbling. Upcoming workshops are taking place in May and June.
The upcoming workshops are as follows:
· May 27 – Shibori: Teaching the ancient Japanese art of shibori. Shibori is the folding, gathering, pleating and binding of cloth, which is then dipped in dye to create unique patterns.
· June 3 – Fabric marbling: Create a colorful silk piece using paint and household tools.
· June 17 – Puppet making: Learn to craft puppets out of household items.
· June 24 – Kaleidoscope making: Make homemade kaleidoscopes, optical instruments that create a colorful, symmetrical pattern when rotated.
All workshops will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and are bilingual in English and Spanish. The workshops are suitable for ages 15 and up. Snacks and beverages will be provided.
Due to the complexities of certain activities, each workshop will have a specific limit on how many can attend. To learn what workshops are still available and reserve a spot, please contact Jesus A. Reyes at [email protected] or call (213) 972-8028.
