Shake a Leg Miami
& 141 E. Flagler St
"O, Dale Miami" is a public collaboration with Dale Kids and O, Miami! We’re be joining forces with Mana Contemporary Miami, located in the historic 777 Mall and the sail-savvy folks overs at Shake a Leg to produce a series of poetry and art workshops - just for kids.
Each workshop features a different theme and approach led by Jeff Sanford. Kids take their writings and merge them into art objects they can hold in their hands and share with their pals and parents.
1. Favorite Pet Workshop
April 7, 10am (Shake a Leg)
Make a poem to your favorite toy, pet, or friend!
In this workshop, led by Miami's own Dale Zine publishing collective, children learn to build a poem dedicated to their all-time favorite toy, pet, or friend.
We encourage participants to bring stuffed animals, toys or pictures of their loved ones for inspiration.
All children will bring home a poem, illustration, and polaroid dedicated to their beloved!
2. Poetry Patches and Pins
April 14th 10:30 am to noon (Shake a Leg)
In this workshop, Dale Zine teaches kids how to make their very own poetry patches and pins to add to backpacks, totes, or jean jackets.
Participants learn basic embroidery stitches, write a cute poem, and leave proud of their new embroidery skills.
