Join instructor Katherine Buenger and learn how to make an elegant bracelet. These bracelets are based on the designs of the Sami people, who are the native people from the far northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia.
The bracelets are constructed with traditional materials including reindeer leather, tin thread (4% silver), and reindeer antler buttons.
Students will learn to make a four-strand braid using tin thread, and then they will hand sew their piece to reindeer leather.
Students are asked to bring:
- Small sharp scissors
- reading glasses if needed
- Since your class runs over the lunch hour, we highly recommend you bring a lunch or click here to learn about local eating opportunities in the area.
No experience necessary.
Students ages 12 and older are welcome to attend this class. (Ages 12-15 need to register with another registered adult. Ages 16-17 can register with parent permission via email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
