Program Description: We are pleased to announce our Mad Hatter’s Wearable Art workshop during spring break for tweens and teens (8-17 years old) in collaboration with Processional Arts Workshop (PAW).
Participants will learn how to create giant masks, head-pieces, and puppets for an art parade in Hudson, NY. Drawing inspiration from worldwide Carnivale and masquerade traditions, this class explores how to design and construct large, lightweight wearable art for parades, theatre, and performance. NYC Halloween Parade designers Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles emphasize a process of visual storytelling, introducing a range of low-tech, high-impact techniques to transform Hudson’s stories into performance art. The final creations will take to the streets for the city’s 1st Annual Mad Hatter’s Parade on May 11, celebrating Hudson’s industrial past and emerging future as a city of makers.
Date/Time: Monday-Thursday, April 22-25 from 10-3pm

We were very pleased to host this year’s Hack The Library for an extended session of two days to a full week. This allowed us to split the participants in two groups: one for tweens + teens new to our hack program and an advanced workshop for returning HACK participants.
The advanced participants were given the full week to research in the library’s History Room with volunteer John Craig, write, shoot, score and edit their own short films around the History of 5th Street. They worked under the guidance of filmmakers Zia Anger and Theo Anthony. We are excited to present their video below
