Weaving with Recycled Materials

Friday, April 19 at 1 PM
The process of weaving allows people to take thin pieces of thread, yarn, or plant material and turn it into strong cloth and baskets. It is a simple yet sophisticated technology that developed independently in cultures all over the world. In honor of Earth Day, students will join Penn Museum educators to learn more about weaving techniques from around the world and then try some paper weaving of their own.

Hanafuda: Japanese Flower Cards 

Friday, May 3 at 1 PM

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Join Penn Museum educators as we learn about hanafuda, a style of traditional Japanese playing cards dating to the 1600s. The cards are intricately designed with different flower patterns connected to the months of the year and used to play different games. Students will learn about hanafuda cards, design their own card, and watch a brief play session of koi koi, a popular hanafuda game.
