Rope Stitch Jewelry

Thursdays, January 10, 17 @ 6-8 p.m.
Cost: $80 ($60 for M members)
This is a two-part class.

Students will design and complete their own rope stitch jewelry while learning the many ways this beading technique can be used. Students may choose to create a bracelet or a pair of earrings with dentalium shells. In addition to learning the rope stitch, participants will get a brief history of beadwork, including the use of other materials, like porcupine quills and shells, and have an opportunity to see other beaded examples of work. 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 or call (651) 797-2571 for more information.
