Potato Stamped Library Bags at the Creation Station
We have a new activity at the Creation Station! For January and February we’re studying the work of Zora Neale Hurston and Alice Walker, two significant Southern authors.
It was Alice Walker’s relentless study and pursuit of Hurston that revived the popularity of the Harlem Renaissance writer. To celebrate their lives and work, we will be decorating canvas library bags at the Creation Station and be providing free information on both authors including Hurston’s book, “Their Eyes Were Watching God” and Walker’s essay, “In Search of Zora Neale Hurston.”
Using a fun and unique potato stamping technique, attendants will decorate their bags with custom stamps and paint. For young children, adult supervision is required and recommended. We will have a variety of stamping tools available. Attendants are welcome to bring their own stamps and/or potatoes.
This is an especially exciting Creation Station because both of our featured artists have birthdays during the duration of our project. Alice Walker was born on February 9 and Zora Neale Hurston was born on January 7.
As always, all Creation Station projects are free and available during the Carnegie Center’s operating hours.
