Create at Home: Colorful Flags

Since we can't welcome you to the museum for our monthly Second Saturdays Are for Families program, we invite you to create at home with us! Each week, we'll post a supply list, followed by a step-by-step activity guide to make an artistic creation with materials found in your own home.

Take tie-dyeing to the next level in this week's Create at Home activity, inspired by artist Liam Gillick’s colorful platform at Laguna Gloria! We’ll show you how to use modern materials and an ancient technique to create fabric art that you can hang up, wear, or turn into something else!

Keep your eyes peeled on Friday, July 3 on our Facebook and Instagram for a step-by-step video tutorial to make your artistic creation. You can also visit for more information and past projects!

In the meantime, let the search for your materials begin!
