Ready to become immersed in the graphic lines of Finnish textiles or the earthiness of California ceramics? Design by Hand is an upcoming series of public programs recently organized by The Cooper-Hewitt. Initially focusing on iconic brands including Marimekko (fall 2013), Heath Ceramics (spring 2014) and Van Cleef & Arpels (fall 2014), the bi-annual workshops and talks will highlight various craftsmen and innovators through spring 2017.
This fall, for example, college students, high school students, and adults will have opportunities to work side by side with Marimekko designers in workshops at the Cooper-Hewitt Design Center. Programming for students is free; adult general admission ranges from $10 to $50 depending on the happening. Family workshops led by museum educators are free. Click here to register.
