In advance of the first night of Sukkot, come and help complete Wandering Sukkah, a collapsible mobile sukkah that will traverse Brooklyn by bicycle. Join sukkah designers Max Goldner and Ethan Blake for a fabric dyeing workshop, using natural materials to add color to the sukkah’s textile walls and evoke the traditions of this harvest holiday.

Wandering Sukkah is a mobile ritual that evolves in form, function, and color over the weeklong holiday of Sukkot. As the sukkah travels by bicycle caravan around Brooklyn it will evolve and change, as  natural materials are woven into its mesh roof,  fabric walls are dyed with natural pigments, and it expands to fit an ice cream social, a Shabbat dinner, and an evening of storytelling and song. Designed by Max Goldner and Ethan Blake (lowercase jews), Wandering Sukkah is a simple structure that transforms into a record of community and placemaking.

Wandering Sukkah is presented by The Neighborhood in collaboration with lowercase jews, Kane Street Synagogue, Romemu Brooklyn, and Nolita Minyan.
