10 and 11:30 a.m.

Looking for a heart-warming gift the kids can make for Mother’s Day? On Saturday, May 12, 2018 the Alexandria Black History Museum will host a Mother’s Day Craft Workshop. Meet us at the Watson Reading Room where we will hold two sessions at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Admission for children ages 4+ is $5, adults are $2. Space is limited so, please reserve your spot.

Our instructors and local artists will guide children in the art of crafting with yarn. Crocheting, knitting, sewing, and weaving are all forms of needlework and textile handicrafts. These are practical skills, but also an art form that has been passed down for generations. Come to create a very special and unique present for the extraordinary woman in your life. Admission also gets you into the museum where you can view our current exhibit, Before the Spirits are Swept Away: African American Historic Site Paintings by Sherry Svares Sanabria and learn about Alexandria’s African American history.

The Watson Reading Room is adjacent to the Alexandria Black History Museum, located at 902 Wythe Street, Alexandria, VA 22314. We are five blocks from the Braddock Road Metro Station on the Yellow and Blue Lines. Street parking is available. For more information and to make your reservation, please call us at 703.746.4356.
