Learn about the history of decorative knots and how to make them yourself with artist Alex Buchanan. Students will practice making basic knots and work their way to more complicated forms before making their own coasters to take home! This is a challenging class, so come prepared to learn this new skill!

Alex Buchanan is an artist and merchant marine who studied fine art at Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Alex also served four years active duty and began his journeys at sea in the U.S. Coast Guard. He focuses on his maritime influences and conveys them as a visual language by layering literal and conceptual translations using related symbology.

$25/members, $30/general public. All materials are provided.
Class is for students ages 12+.
