When PMG’s founding artist Isaiah Zagar began to create mosaics, he loved experimenting with different materials and textures. Since then he has used many different materials in his art — even fabric! This month’s #PECOFamilyJams encourages visitors to experiment with a variety of textures while weaving with burlap. Use ribbon, pipe cleaners, yarn and more to create your own take-home souvenir. Make a bookmark, coaster, or use your imagination to create something completely different!

Attend PECO Family Jams for free this Sunday by mentioning “PECO Family Jams” at the front desk.
