April’s Second Sunday event, “Getting Warped: An introduction to Basic Weaving” with textile artist Jayson Hunt, will be held on Sunday, April 10th from 2-4pm. The public is invited to explore weaving with Jayson and learn simple weaving structures. Play with color and texture as you craft a simple strap, belt or band. No loom needed.
Jayson Hunt believes that art is where beauty, form, and function collide. Reluctant to call himself an artist Jayson likes to think of himself as a practitioner of craft and traditions…if art is the result then the world is a better place, if you make an ugly dish rag then you get clean dishes. Jayson has been working with fabric and fiber since he was a child. He dabbles with watercolors and is a strong supporter of the spoken word.
Mark your calendars and look forward to activities on the second Sunday of every month at the Harlow. These events bring artists and art lovers together to enjoy the process of making art as well as looking at art and discussing it. Most events are perfect for families, and all are welcome. Children under 10 MUST be accompanied by an adult. These workshops take place every 2nd Sunday from 2-4pm at the Harlow Gallery, and are free and open to the public. Some materials are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own as well.
The Harlow Gallery’s Education Committee organizes and hosts SECOND SUNDAYS, our monthly series of free community art-making events sponsored by Camden National Bank.
