    Garment workers have always been a large part of Chinatown’s identity and community. Learn about their experiences as you work alongside other visitors to create a collaborative tapestry or individual weaving that reflects on your contributions to the rich fabric of MOCA and the Chinatown community. Use a variety of cloth, yarn, ribbons, and beads to construct your weaving. What will your tapestry represent?
