Bird Art Indigo Painting and Collage for Kids
October 19 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Ronna Fujisawa as she teaches kids the joy of bird art through indigo painting and collage.
The joy of indigo blue and birds—let’s join together and learn how to distinguish the little birds in our backyard! Children will learn about our flying friends with an introduction to fun facts about birds and their environment. Learn how to draw birds, paint with handmade indigo watercolor, and use creative skills to collage origami paper and other hand-dyed indigo fiber materials into an expressive bird art project.
Open to children ages 6 and older.
Portland Textile Month only happens one month out of the year and we have more events than we can list. So the TextileX-change has been created to serve as a year-round companion site. Both community platforms provide a space to share ideas, histories, knowledge, commerce, and practices across cultures and generations.
TextileXchange serves as a primary hub to foster this inspired exchange throughout the Portland textile community and beyond. We hope you’ll join us!

Help Fund the Next Phase of Development of Portland Textile Month
In only 15 months, PTM has turned from an ambitious idea into an engaged community movement. This transformation highlights the power of our mission to foster collaboration cross-pollination, cultural dialogue, and exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
We've organized two festivals with over 120 events—representing the diversity of textile interests and practices. And we've galvanized makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather around shared interests and knowledge-sharing.
PTM would not have been possible without the dedication of a core group of committed volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community. We hope to continue building PTM and TextileXchange as sustainable resources that serve the textile community for years to come. And that's where you come in.
If you feel a connection to the PTM mission and what we can accomplish together, please consider directly supporting the next phase of our development. As a direct contributor, your funds will go toward directly towards operational expenses.
