Workshops for People with Parkinson’s and their Care-Partners

October 25, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm


Workshop by the Philadelphia Museum of Art Accessible Programs for People with Parkinson’s Disease and their Care Partners

“Patterned Play” Creating Your Own Fashion Statement


With a Museum guide, the participants will first tour our Fabulous Fashion: From Dior’s New Look to Now special exhibition: Experience the drama and glamour of some of the most creative feminine fashions ever designed, from romantic ball gowns to audacious contemporary ensembles, and everything in between.

We’ll pay extra attention to the patterns, colors, and design features to use as inspiration for our later piece.


In the studio we will create patterned silk scarves based on what we saw in the exhibitions. We will leave this class with a further understanding of Shibori pattern making techniques and how to layer colors of fiber reactive dye to create our own fashion statements.


These workshops are designed for people with Parkinson’s and their care partners and include a 1-hour private guided tour and 2-hour studio experience with 1/2 hour break for lunch. The fee is $10.00 per person. Care partners and personal attendants are admitted free.  Click here for info and how to register!

Parking is free of charge. Classes are limited, so please register early! Contact Accessible Programs at 215.684.7602.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art Programs for individuals with Parkinson’s disease are generously supported by The Parkinson Council and the Susan O. Jaffe Quality of Life Initiative.
