Ages 8 + | March 30 | 2-4 p.m.

Instructor: Clarke Reynolds

$10 – The PLAY, TOUCH, MAKE workshop is designed to highlight the beauty and importance of braille through play. The workshop is based around color-coded Braille Scrabble tiles to create words through touch and their associated color exploring language and how we perceive letters in a unique way. Like the ‘M’ in McDonald’s, we associate the Yellow ‘M’ with that of McDonald’s. Each letter in the alphabet has been given a designated color so that sighted individuals can become more familiar with Braille through color by the end of the workshop.

Workshop Details:
• Introduction by Clarke Reynolds, The Blind Braille Artist
• Split into four groups to begin a game of Scrabble
• Artistically design and assemble paper cubes using a color-coded braille system
• In closing, students will share their experiences and their creations

“My aim is to make Braille more inclusive in society through the size and color of the dot, as it becomes a metaphor for sight loss, [a disability that is not easily recognized] ‘small’ and hidden away, and not talked about, but when you blow it [Braille Dots] up, it [vision loss] becomes important and we start talking about sight loss and break down those barriers.
My art does this and so does my playful workshop as no matter your age we can still learn and be like children again…”

– Clarke Reynolds
