It’s Friday and we can’t wait to unchain ourselves from our desks and get out and about. Weekend Wanderer is a series that you’ll find every Friday morning featuring a few activities we’d like to explore. Check them out for yourself or do something in your neck of the woods. Either way, just get out and wander.
Stitch This at Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, New York
Join Etsy artist Jessica Marquez at the Brooklyn Museum on Saturday afternoon to create your own pieces of art. Using thread, text and images, this workshop gives visitors a chance to make their own masterpieces. There is a $15 materials fee and participants can bring their own images or create something new. To secure a spot, visit the Brooklyn Museum at 200 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. (Ed. Note: Krrb is giving away two tickets today to “Stitch This” to readers who tag us — @krrbsale — in an Instagram photo of their favorite secondhand find or for the desk-bound, their favorite office accessory.)
