Pop Up Workshop at FWM: Schedule of Unboxing Events

January 09, 2015 by Braden Weeks Earp

Hello Philadelphia!

Pop-Up Workshop Residence at Fabric Workshop and Museum for January 1 - March 8th 2015.  We brought our artist-designed products from San Francisco, and are hosting a series of events in collaboration with FWM to celebrate their 38 year archive of "Artist Boxes".  

Our pop-up at 1222 Arch Street in Downtown Philly is open 10-6 Tuesday through Saturday, our SF Workshop is open normal hours while we are away. 



Twice a week Workshop Residence and FWM collaborate in an “Unboxing” series within the reading room at 1222 Arch Street.  The Museum's archival "Artist Boxes" contains samples, prototypes, swatches, and other materials generated during an artist’s residency at FWM.  This archive of material, not usually on view to the public, provides a window into the behind-the-scenes process involved with creating each project.  FWM Education staff will lead a short presentation with images, explanations and conversation. Unboxings take place at 1:30 on Wednesdays and Saturdays:
