Families with children age 7 and up
Sunday, August 2
Free with pre-registration.
Instructor: Andrea Thompson and guests
Families are welcomed to bring new or old, clean t-shirts to this fun, green workshop. Participants will be guided through a simple process to upcycle their shirts into reusable tote and grocery bags. No sewing ability is required but sewing machines will be available for those interested. Extra tote bags created during this workshop will be donated to Fresh Connect, helping low-income families gain access to healthy food options. Extra t-shirts are welcome to support this effort. Visitors will be inspired by the Rising Tides: Contemporary Art and the Ecology of Water exhibition.
Fresh Connect Bucks County is a free farmers’ market bringing fresh, healthy food to our hungry neighbors in Bucks County. It returns to the same location on the same day at the same time each week, providing reliable and needed food to the 50,000 Bucks County residents facing hunger, 34% of whom are children. Fresh Connect is a collaboration of Bucks County Opportunity Council, Philabundance, Rolling Harvest Food Rescue and St. Mary Medical Center, with generous funding by United Way of Bucks County.

Unplugged Family Days @ the Michener are presented by the Leff Family Foundation.
