Family Workshop: Spiderweb Weaving

October 30, 2022
1–2:30 pm

How do spiders spin their webs? Join us in the Museum lobby or a free family workshop inspired by Tomás Saraceno’s Cosmic Filaments, an installation that replicates the strength, flexibility, and intricacy of a spiderweb. Channel your inner creepy-crawly to create a spiderweb weaving while learning about the importance of spiders in Earth’s ecosystems.

Materials are provided, and all ages are welcome. Registration is encouraged. Register here >>
