Class Description:  Take your eco-printing skills to the next level.  Learn how to embody gorgeous color backgrounds into your eco-printed textile.  This class focuses on a technique called “eco-printing with a carrier blanket” and has become very popular amongst textile artists around the world.  Beginning with a blank white scarf, participants will create a design on the fabric using plant materials.  A separate fabric will then be used to infuse a colorful background.  Participants are encouraged to have some previous eco-printing experience. After registration, participants will be guided to collect and flatten botanical materials to use or experiment with in their design.  We will break for lunch.  Feel free to bring your own or preorder an optional boxed lunch from our local gourmet deli.

Juneteenth Celebration 2024
JUNE 23 @ 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM
The Emancipation Proclamation freed enslaved people in the Confederate states. It took until June 19, 1865 for Union troops to arrive in Galveston, Texas to enforce the proclamation and ensure the freedom of those people who were enslaved. Slavery as an institution did not end in the United States as a whole until the ratification of the 13th Amendment in December, 1865. In honor of Juneteenth, Washington Crossing Historic Park will host several free special events and activities on Sunday, June 23 from 3 to 7 PM. They will educate visitors about the contributions of Black American soldiers during the Revolutionary War and Civil War as well as what Juneteenth is and why its legacy is so important today. Thank you to Bloomberg, who is once again our event sponsor.

Schedule:

3:00-4:00 PM lecture on the contributions of black soldiers during the revolution and civil war, what Juneteenth is, and it’s legacy today
4:00-5:00 PM living history
5:00-7:00 PM concert
