NJ Makers Day at the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts

March 23 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


We will be joined by fiber artist Anne Choi of Middle Brook Fiberworks, who will be available to answer questions and demonstrate a variety of weaving techniques. Staff will also guide you in creating your own woven strand. Makers Day is a statewide event that celebrates and promotes maker culture, as well as the values associated with making, tinkering, crafting, manufacturing and STEM-based learning. Our version of Makers Day pays homage to the early makers and craftspeople who created textiles and fabrics that were artistic as well as utilitarian.

All activities included with regular admission. Free for METC Members.
