Join artist/activist Monica Jahan Bose for an inspiring and empowering Sari Pledge Workshop. The workshop includes an audio/visual learning session on climate change and its impacts in coastal Bangladesh followed by hands-on woodblock printing with Bangladeshi blocks and writing with paint on handwoven cotton saris. Learn how you can make a difference to global warming by pledging to reduce your own carbon footprint. Participants become part of Storytelling with Saris and can add their experiences to the project website and are also invited to join in a public performance in the fall using the saris. The saris will ultimately be returned to Bangladesh to be worn by coastal women. The workshop is 1 -1/2 hours and participants for Saturday workshops should plan to join at 11 am or 12:30 pm. The workshop is designed for adults and teens but children 10 and older may join with parent supervision.

Free workshop but please sign up with Eventbrite.
