ASL Interpreted Labs Programs at MLK – UPDATE

The announcement in the C4A newsletter that went out last week had an error in the title of the August 9th program.   Here is an update for August, which includes the correct information for August 9th and adds an entry for the August 27th Maker Talk.   Apologies for any inconvenience the error may have caused.
The correct interpreted Labs program schedule for August is:
  • Tuesday, August 9th at 5:00 PM
How to Read Patterns
This event is virtual and will have one speaker, Molly Stratton. Stratton will give a lecture on how to read sewing patterns, from figuring out sizing to decoding common symbols.
  • Saturday, August 27th at 1:00 PM
Maker Talk:   Allie Tripp’s Block Print Bike - Bringing Art to DC Neighborhoods via Bicycle 
This event is in person in the Dance Studio on the A Level of the MLK Library.
There will be two speakers: the host, Molly Stratton, and the Maker Talk presenter, Allie Tripp. In 2020, DC-based artist Allie Tripp launched a mobile printmaking studio called the Block Print Bike to create a socially-distant way to connect with her community during the pandemic. Using a grant from the Awesome Foundation, Tripp would bicycle through neighborhoods and create block printed postcards based on a neighborhood's flowers and gardens, then hand them out to residents at local parks. This talk will include a short video presentation of Allie's bicycling adventures, and will end with you being able to create your own block print post card.
