Series will take place on Thursdays, Mar. 30 - Apr. 27, 2023.
Learn how to create a beautiful assortment of imitative African style beads that look just like the real thing using polymer clay! Discover the origin, technique and language of these tribal beads, and make a variety of bead shapes, cane construction, color mixing, collage, and mixing the medium. Design your own necklace and stretchy bracelet with your finished imitative batik bone beads, Ghanian krobo powdered glass beads, African indigo beads, and imitative African trade beads, originally Millefiore beads. On the last day of class prepare to show off your work in front of friends and family by participating in a class fashion show. All skill levels welcome.
A generous grant from E. A. Michelson Philanthropy covers some of the supplies provided to participants.
