Museums provide visitors with information about objects and their history, but rarely give insight as to how these stories are discovered. The Branigan Cultural Center will give a hands-on workshop on Thursday, April 24 at 1 pm on the study of material culture through a pair of Kurdish shoes from the Branigan collection.

In-Depth workshops will introduce participants to objects from the museum’s permanent collections. In this workshop, aimed at adults, we will carefully examine a single pair of shoes. These shoes, from Iran, come with very little documentation, but we will examine how they were made, the use of different materials and techniques, and other culturally significant aspects of these objects. Come see for yourself what information can be contained in a single item. This program is free and open to the public.
