Make a Frida Kahlo Headband and Cascarones at the Free Make-and-Take at the Maker’s Market!
Silver City MainStreet/Arts & Cultural District is partnering with the Future Forge and various community groups and artists to offer an arts and cultural experience to residents of Grant county. Make-and-Take activities will be from 10 am to 2 pm every Saturday at the Maker’s Market at Main Street Plaza, May through October.
On Saturday, June 19, WNMU’s Department of Cultural Affairs invites you to make a Frida Kahlo headband and cascarones. “This would have been the weekend of Fiesta Latina, so we wanted to do an activity that reminds people of the event”, states Alexandra Tager, Cultural Affairs Program Coordinator. The Make and Take will be led by Lea Ann Cook, Children’s Activity Coordinator for Fiesta Latina.”
The Future Forge is providing the space for the Make and Take table at the Maker’s Market, held May through October on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm at the Main Street Plaza in downtown Silver City. This table will be used to offer free, family oriented activities for residents of Grant county. Silver City MainStreet offers a small stipend for supplies in addition to a table and chairs.
The purpose is to provide an arts and cultural experience for youth and families. Art experiences are not readily available in Grant county, and this is a great opportunity for youth to experience art and see Makers selling their work at the Maker’s Market. It makes art more relevant, especially as a way to earn income.
