Nordic Craft Workshop: Advanced Saami-Inspired Bracelets

Saturday, February 10, 2018 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Nordic Craft Workshop: Advanced Saami-Inspired Bracelets

Students will braid traditional pewter coiled thread and sew this braid to a reindeer hide strip using acrylic and cotton thread.

This Advanced Saami-Inspired Bracelet class will expand on techniques learned in the beginning class to create a double braid bracelet with additional twists. The techniques used to create these projects will follow the model of an oral tradition passed down over 100 years by the Saami people, the indigenous people of Northern Scandinavia.

Students learn by watching and engaging in what is a “living” tradition.

A materials fee of $125 (includes pewter thread & reindeer hide) is payable to the instructor. Register at least one week in advance; please call for availability after that date.

Students who are interested in this class should first take the beginning course offered the day before on Friday, Feb. 9 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

ASI members $85 / non-members $95
