Coming Up: Family Activity Day at Museum of Craft & Folk Art

The first Saturday of every month, the Museum of Craft & Folk Art hosts Family Activity Days from 1-3 p.m.
This month it's a Japanese ‘tea party’ featuring fabulous Bay Area artists working in the Japanese tradition. The event includes an origami demonstration (then try it yourself and take home your creation). Also, see the whimsical illustrations of Japanese artist Tomoko Maruyama, sample Japanese snacks, and more!

To register for the Family Activity Day, call (415) 227 4888 x 10.

The museum also offers 18 hands-on workshops for kids at schools (or in groups), looking at ancient and contemporary indigenous life around the world. Check out workshops here, like learning about African American quilting patterns, ancient Greek ceramics, India's palm leaf bookmaking, and rice as food and folkart.

So if you're looking for an interesting group to bring into your kids' classroom, this would qualify!
