You have three opportunities to take this single-session class.
Expand your knowledge of Hmong culture through Hmong embroidery, learning the cultural roots and artistic techniques of Paj Ntaub. This class is a partnership between the M and Hmong Museum, where participants learn about the two traditional Paj Ntaub stitches: cross-stitch and applique. The instructor will demonstrate the process of creating both stitches, then learners choose a Paj Ntaub project to work on for the rest of class session. Learners will get the one-on-one support and feedback so they can finish their selected Paj Ntaub project at home. All experience levels welcome.
Scholarships are available on request for half and full tuition on a first come, first served basis. Classes are free at the M for Native community members. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (651) 797-2571 for more information.
