  • Whitney Museum of American Art
  • 99 Gansevoort St., Meatpacking District
  • All Ages
  • FREE

Lenore Tawney created Four Petaled Flower II using a technique she developed herself called “open warp.” A warp is the name for vertical strands that provide support in a woven textile. Working between these strands, Tawney wove in such a way to reveal the otherwise invisible structure of the textile and to allow light to peek through.

Together, we will make our own looms with materials we have at home. Then, we will weave our own tiny tapestries!

––Colorful yarn or thin strips of cloth
––Big plastic needle or small piece of stiff wire

Advanced registration required.

  • The Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holding of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum's key resource. The Museum's signature exhibition, the Biennial, is the country's leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.
