Family Free Day: Home

“Home” is the theme for a community-led Free Family Day coordinated by artist-in-residence Kim Khaira and Rohingya refugee leader Hasinah Begum. Working together with other refugee community leaders, community members, Call & Response artists, and allies, we are building a space of leading, of coming together, and of celebrating refugees. This free outdoor festival celebrates Milwaukee’s refugee communities through art, food, and performance. Sample foods, crafts, and performances on Lynden’s grounds, and join several of Lynden’s Call & Response artists for workshops and activities. Arianne King Comer launches her open dyeing studio, which will be in residence through mid-July; Evelyn Patricia Terry offers an all-ages drop-in workshop that invites you to draw the ethnic dolls in her collection; and chef and food scholar Scott Barton and interdisciplinary artist Portia Cobb invite you out to Eliza’s Peculiar Cabinet of Curiosities (Folayemi Wilson) and Lizzie’s Garden for some tasting. We invite you to come to the table and to leave with your bellies and hearts full. This is a Call & Response event.

THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULL. Please email us at info@woodtype.org to be placed on the wait list. Thank you!

Metal type for letterpress printing is undoubtedly one of the most detailed and exquisite examples of craftsmanship. At it’s absolute detailed height in the late 1800s, printers were presented with incredible options for creating everything from simple flower embellishments to elaborate systems of illustrations built with ornament.
