Join MAD and the Church of Craft for a night of hands-on art making, music, food, and drink in celebration of the Museum's current exhibition Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary. Local do-it-yourself artists will demonstrate their personal skills and help guide you in creating your own projects. Techniques will range from weaving with unconventional materials to making yarn out of old sweaters, among other contemporary twists on classic crafts. In addition to do-it-yourself workshops, the NIY Salon will include hand-decorated snacks, craft beer, and a live DJ. Guided tours of Second Lives will be available. Over 200 people did-it-themselves at this event last year, so don't miss out this time around!
