Mix it Up with Chapel Hill artist Sandy Milroy and the Karen Youth Artists

This weekend we explored Karen culture, language, and design at our Mix it Up in the Makery with Chapel Hill artist Sandy Milroy and the Karen Youth Artists. We designed colorful weavings using a loom, learned how to write phrases in Karen,  and created cards decorated with patterns found in native Karen traditional clothing. In addition to the creative and engaging loom activities we also challenged ourselves with the Karen memory game by trying to find matching pictures of fruits and vegetables that are grown on traditional Karen farms.
