Create at Home: Nature Weaving

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 a walk around the block to find materials for this week's Create at Home project – a nature weaving! Chinese artist Ai Weiwei used trees as inspiration for his sculpture Iron Tree Trunk at Laguna Gloria... what will YOU use?

Keep your eyes peeled on Friday, May 29 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!
