Close Knit Community Workshop

Close Knit Community Workshop is Bridging Cities, Inc.’s intergenerational events where we teach people how to use fabric arts. People have fun learning the art in the company of good folks who wish to learn and create together.


Multi-generational knowledge-sharing is a key component for positive and sustainable change to occur in diverse populations. Our events seek to activate people in the Greater Milwaukee area to spur such change.

Where we'll be:
