Connecting communities with artists to protect LA rivers, beaches & wildlife!
Join us in Frogtown in July and August of 2019!
How does the river bring us together as a city? How does fast fashion impact our community, and the river? Come explore these issues, make a difference and learn how to make fabric art this summer in a series of fun pop-up workshops! You will work with local artists to create fabric-based art (kites, wind sculpture, flags, etc) out of donated fabric, recycled and found objects. After a flash clean-up of the LA-river, we will explore various fabric-based art-making methods with some of LA’s local artists, exploring techniques like assemblage, collage, patchwork, embroidery and scrap maps!

Spoke Bicycle Café: 3050 N Coolidge Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90039
