When: Sat., May 28 2016
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year already since Praxis Fiber Workshop officially opened its doors to the public. Located just west of East 156th St. on Waterloo Rd. in Collinwood, Praxis’ facilities include a formal gallery space, a communal studio space and individual studios spaces. Over the past year, Praxis has hosted formal exhibitions, students, community groups and many special events. To celebrate their first year, Praxis hosts a full day of activities from 1 to 9 p.m. today. You can dye your own t-shirt (bring your own or buy one for $3). At 2 p.m., Maura Rogers & the Bellows will play live in the gallery, and Laura Yurko (CIA ’17) will follow with a performance of her own at 4 p.m. From 7 to 9 p.m., the evening will conclude with an Underground Classical Launch Party with music from Oblivion Project.
