March Meeting: Exploring Modern

The original meeting location was incorrect.  
We will meet at the Urbandale Public Library for our March Meeting.

We have an amazing program lined up for you this Thursday!  Jill and Marny will be leading a discussion and hands on activity exploring what makes blocks modern.  Here is what they say about the program:

"What do you feel makes a block modern?  Let's explore out loud and in person!  We'll look at the modern blocks you all bring and discuss a bit why they are modern.  Then you'll use your favorite traditional block and examine ways to make it modern."

The supply list for Thursday 3/20/14 meeting
  • a modern block, can be an actual block or just a picture
  • have your favorite traditional block in mind, you'll be making mock cut and paste blocks based on this block 
  • glue stick
  • either fabric or colored paper in a range of values, including a background that is either lighter or darker than everything else 
  • if using fabric, rotary cutting supplies. Scissors and ruler will work for those using paper if you don't want to dull a rotary blade.
You are not going to want to miss this.  Mark you calendars and invite a friend!
