Family Workshop: Make Your Own Socktopus


It's one of those facts of life that a solitary sock or two will turn up after each load of laundry. We can't help you answer the mystery of where the other one goes, but we can help you make the most of the other lonely sock. For our next Family Workshop, come turn that solo sock into a soft sculpture sea creature. Following an inspiring tour of the ocean-themed work of Cosima von Bonin, parents and children are welcome to join us in our studio to create “socktopus" sculptures together. A parent or guardian must accompany children for the duration of their visit.

This program is free of charge, BYOS (Bring Your Own Sock). No pre-registration required.
