Learn how to make your own gorgeous jewelry!

Washi is a traditional Japanese handmade decorative paper made from the inner bark of plants such as mulberry, bamboo, and wisteria. The intertwining fibers result in a durable paper that can decorate any surface, including wooden and metal beads. In addition to making a unique washi bead necklace during the class, you will also learn how to make a matching protective purse pouch from instructors Reiko and Midori Nakano.

Please bring a pair of sharp scissors, a snack, and a desire to practice and learn technical skills such as looping, wrapping, and clasping. Everything else will be supplied. $64 members, $80 non-members, plus $25 materials fee due to the instructor at the beginning of class (cash only). Museum admission included. Limited to 12 participants.
