Woven Welcome

You are invited to the Woven Welcome Workshop at the 412 (412 Chestnut Street Emmaus). This is a free Community Arts Workshop presented by the Barn and Faith Presbyterian Church. Woven Welcome, a community-based art project, utilizes the woven rug as a statement of the ways in which individuals are interconnected. The 412 Community Arts Workshop will create woven rugs for an ongoing exhibit at the Allentown Art Museum. In December, artist Jill Odegaard began making segments with a wide variety of groups throughout the Lehigh Valley. The 412 Community Arts Team invites you to participate in this workshop with Jill Odegaard. Please bring in red, white, and blue materials to create the rugs. For example, you can bring a red T-shirt which has a special meaning to you. You can share the story, and your T-shirt will become a part of this special exhibit sharing art and the stories of people from our local community.
