WORKSHOPS, WORKSHOPS, WORKSHOPS!: Gamble House Workshops
We have three workshops being offered at the Gamble House this week.
Wednesday, October 1st from 7-10pm is Urban Cat Architecture with artist Keith Rocka Knittel. Keith will teach participants how to design cat dwellings of their own, exploring the emotional and physical needs of both humans and felines, with an emphasis on integrating cat homes into existing architectural styles.
Saturday, October 4th from 2-5pm, Lisa Anne Auerbach will teach you how to make soap, inspired by Proctor and Gamble’s rise to power through their Ivory Soap empire. The Soap Making workshop will cover mold making, scenting with natural oils, safe handling of lye, and more.
Saturday October 4th from 4-7pm, master embroiderer and artist Jenny Hart will lead Embroidery in Architecture, offering the rare opportunity to engage in domestic activity in one of the most architecturally significant homes in California. Participants will be provided an embroidery hoop, needles, embroidery floss, and a pre-printed design on fabric.
