Stitching Through Time: “The Last Straw” Lamp

  • This event has passed.

“Stitching Through Time” is a crafting series where you’ll meet to make a project and learn about its history in the process.

Last summer, FCMoD shifted from using plastic straws to eco-friendly waxed paper for our Sound Bites exhibit. So, what do we do with all the plastic straws that were left over? We make an awesome craft out of them, of course!

Join us for Stitching Through Time as we re-purpose our wrapped straw surplus into funky wall sconces inspired by craft guru Mark Montano’s legendary “Strawburst Lamp.” All supplies will be provided to make your own fabulous 10 inch wall lamp that casts a gentle LED glow (colors may vary).

Ages 16+, with exceptions for parents with children who would like to come along. $12/$10 for members.
