This class introduces students to Indigenous beadwork art and its significance and importance. You’ll learn traditional skills incorporated with contemporary designs and create your own unique beadwork art – a pair of earrings or a keychain/short lanyard! Explore traditional and modern beadwork techniques such as lazy stitch, one and two-needle beading, rope stitch, and edging techniques. We’ll use a variety of glass beads, acrylic embellishments, and leather supplies. Let’s become good stewards of the arts together as we explore this culturally-important and beautiful art form! There is a one-hour break for lunch. All supplies included. Please enter through the Penn Avenue door.
Teaching Artists: Pamela Pascali and Wendy Anderson
