Hatch Costume Open Studio
Borrow a costume or bring your own materials to bring your bird to life in preparation of the Hatch on June 25
All are invited to join ArtYard for a Hatch costume open studio from 10 AM to 1 PM on Saturday, May 7 in preparation for the fifth anniversary ArtYard Hatch, a joyful celebration of creative incubation that will take place on June 25.
The Hatch features live music, performance, storytelling, and a parade of locals dressed as birds who hatch from a giant 14-foot egg to celebrate creative incubation and community.
At the open studio, we are providing space for communal making, sample bird costumes to inspire you, and some basic supplies such as fabric scraps, glue, paint, and sewing needles. This is not an instructional workshop but a space to invent your own costume in a community of makers with big tables and a lively soundtrack. Please bring your own materials, such as sheets, hazmat suits, masks, feathers, and other embellishments.
We also have a limited supply of past bird costumes in our closets that you can borrow for family and friends to be returned after the Hatch. Please stop by if you would like to browse our closet!
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Call 908.996.5018 or email [email protected].
