With wax crayons and paper in hand, visit some of Wave Hill’s treasured trees and have a tactile experience through observation, touch, and simple, but rich, bark rubbings. Using these rubbings, work with burlap, cheesecloth, strips of leather, craft paper and yarn to create a collection of rich textures and bark-inspired designs. 

Free, and admission to the grounds is free until noon.
