Let’s get into the spirit of Caribbean Carnival with visual artist Karen Bell-Higgins, who takes you on a journey to create your carnival-themed clothespin character. Take a break from the heat and join Karen in the Main Loft as she shows you how to use both traditional and recyclable materials to make something unique to you! Whether this clothespin character reflects you, a loved one or a new fictional character, this is your chance to get creative. This is an all-ages event, so stop by, explore and create!
