The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University is collaborating with the Buffalo History Museum to present two folk arts workshops this summer. Both programs will be held at the Buffalo History Museum, located at 1 Museum Court (just east of Elmwood Avenue and off Nottingham Terrace, north of the Scajaquada Expressway, in the northwest corner of Delaware Park).
"Tuscarora Beadwork at the Buffalo History Museum" will be held from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11. The program will be led by Mary Annette Clause. Learn about the art of Tuscarora-raised beadwork through this hands-on workshop.
"Turkish Paper Marbling at the Buffalo History Museum" will take place from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25. This program will be led by Hatice Sorkunlu. Learn the traditional art of ebru (Turkish paper marbling) through this hands-on workshop.
Pre-registration for both workshops is required and supplies are included. It's $5 for general public, and free for Castellani Art Museum or Buffalo History Museum members.
