PECO Family Jams: Upcycled Pouches

Event Details

Event Date

Event Date: Sunday, December 10, 2023

Event Time

Event Time: 12:00 PM - to 4:00 PM

Event Description

There are hundreds of pieces of folk art from Mexico included in Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. Some folk artists follow traditions taught by their parents or grandparents. They use traditional materials, like clay and straw. Others invent brand new ways of using things thrown away by everyone else. Today’s craft is inspired by goods found in our favorite marketplaces in Mexico. We will use colorful snack bags, vinyl, and duct tape to make wallets you can take home.  

Tour our fully mosaicked basement at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30 p.m. Learn about some of the special folk art at PMG.

A limited amount of FREE tickets are available to visit PMG during this PECO Family Jams event. Reserve your free tickets here.

PECO Family Jams are PMG’s family-oriented programs, held on the second Sunday of every month between noon and 4:00 pm. Crafts and basement tours are included with regular admission to PMG.
