Workshop for Ages 11 - 14: Weaving with Natural Materials

Youth/Teen Workshop Series for Ages 11 - 14

May 1, 2021

Come learn or build upon the basics of weaving and how to incorporate natural materials into your weaving! Begin by making a loom and experiment with natural materials like twigs, palms, flower stems, and other natural materials to create environmentally-inspired weavings. 

We ship supplies you will need for this workshop after registration. 

Please have these items on hand: 

  • scissors
  • natural materials foraged and gathered from your yard, garden, park or other outdoor space (things like small twigs, flowers with stems, and palms/grasses work well)


Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh believes that cost should never be a barrier to inspiring kindness, joy, creativity and curiosity.  We offer a sliding ticket price model to accommodate all learners.

Registration deadline is April 15, 2021.
