This event is hosted in conjunction with the Kings County Fiber Festival.

The Kings County Fiber Festival returns to OSH for an eighth year! Join us for this celebration of the handmade.

We’re proud to host a curated selection of vendors who will showcase their fine fiber arts and supplies for sale along the park on 5th Avenue and 3rd and 4th Streets. Workshop offerings will include “Arm Knitting”, and a “Fleece to Shawl Challenge”, and an artist demonstration by Tahir Carl Karmali & Jessi Highnet in partnership with the No More Water exhibition at OSH. New to the festival this year an artist talk and live exhibit with crochet artist Nassat_Nation who has a Sargent Pepper fashion style.

This year is also the 2nd annual “Make Warm Hats for the Homeless” hat drive, last year we distributed over 400 hats to two soup kitchens and an LGBTQ shelter. Bring hats to donate!

Bring your tools and join us in drawing a professional life model every first Monday of the month (usually – but we skipped ahead a week because of Labor Day!). Tickets:  $12 in advance at Brown Paper Tickets $15 at the door, $10 students with ID

All skill levels welcome. No judgment, just a friendly environment in which to practice, create, and have a great time.

Come out and draw! What are you doing Monday night anyhow???

The 3-hour figure drawing session takes place upstairs in the OSH Great Room, which unfortunately is not ADAA accessible.

The space is comfortable, clean and well lit. Chairs for everyone. Bring your tools (no oil, acrylic or sprays, please).

We will do an hour of gestures and short poses, finishing with a 2 hour-long pose. This is an uninstructed class.

Join local artist and educator Iviva Olenick for a free workshop on indigo dye.

Visit us on September 22 at 3 pm to learn about the processes that transform common looking plants into linen and brilliant blue dye.

By focusing her work on the history of textile production, Olenick’s work enhances our understanding of the impact that these plants had on the evolution of fiber arts in early America and around the world.
