Frida Memes

"Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?" Artist Frida Kahlo is known for her eclectic personality as much as her artwork. Use a variety of materials to decorate a reimagined portrait of Frida and stencil one of her famous quotes as a caption. Explore her intimate photographs in Frida Kahlo: Her Photos for inspiration.

Spool Knitting

Learn the basic principles of knitting and yarn work using this simple tool to create a narrow tube of fabric. Get creative and make patches, decorative shapes and bracelets from your knitted cord! Be sure to visit The Black Gold Tapestry and Eye of the Needle for inspiration from the intricate needlework and embroidery on exhibition.
