Everything old is new again! Bourbon Bash, KMAC's longest-running event, is now known as KMAC Bash. Still a celebration of bourbon and art, this year's Bash will include inventive food from LEE Initiative chefs, bourbon cocktails courtesy of Maker's Mark and a specialty bar featuring Brown-Forman products. The Mocktail Project will also be in house with their elevated alcohol-free creations. All that, plus music by DJ Sam Sneed and the art of the KMAC Triennial Crown of Rays exhibition.
In this workshop, participants will learn basic weaving concepts and explore the process of designing with a loom and yarn.
