Join our own Chris Motley and local members of afghans for Afghans for knitting, tea and conversation at the Asian Art Museum during the run of the special exhibition, Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum, Kabul. Bring your knitting needles and wool yarn, and start (or finish) a project to send to Afghanistan. It all takes place at the Education Studios, from 1:30 – 4:30 pm, starting on the opening Sunday, October 26 and ongoing first Sundays November 2, December 7 and January 4.
afghans for Afghans is a humanitarian and educational people-to-people project that knits and crochets wool blankets, sweaters, vests, socks, mittens, and hats for the people of Afghanistan. The project started in response to the war that unfolded after 9/11. This follows a long-time American tradition of knitting for others at times of war and crisis.
