Artslab with Artist-in-Residence Max Colby

Fri, Nov 15 / 4 pm

Join Artist-in-Residence Max Colby and learn the basics of appliqué, from iron-on patches to sewing. Materials will be provided, though participants are encouraged to bring their own clothing, patches, or fabric to work with.

About Max

Max Colby creates maximal works of textiles, embroidery, and painting that examine social themes through a queer lens. Their series of intricate embroideries and textile assemblages subvert craft forms and techniques traditionally tied to domestic, religious, and ceremonial settings. At MAD, Colby will further develop a new series that considers trans and non-binary identity and is inspired by funeral wreaths and ceremonial altarpieces.

About Artslab

Artslab is a free workshop program that connects teens ages thirteen to eighteen with the Museum's Artists-in-Residence. The curricula for this workshop was developed in collaboration with the Museum's 2019 class of high school summer interns.
