Textiles at Home: Block Printed Handkerchiefs

Friday, November 5 @ 4pm CT
Terrace/Third Floor of Nancy Nicholas Hall

American politics depend on participation. Now you can engage with our exhibition, Politics at Home: Textiles as American History, directly through this hands-on block printing workshop! After you learn all about the history of political iconography through the many examples of handkerchiefs in the exhibition, stop by the SoHE’s third floor balcony for a drop-in block printing workshop and leave with your very own, customized handkerchief. All materials will be provided and all ages are welcome. (We request that children under eight are accompanied by an adult.)

This event is free and open to the public. Please follow all campus safety protocols.
