BEADED AMULET BAG with Barbara Vogelstein

Saturday, July 15 - 1 pm to 4 pm
Saturday, July 22 - 1 pm to 4 pm

Beaded amulet bags are small pouches that can be worn as a decorative necklace. In ancient times they were used by Native tribes to carry herbs or things to ward off evil spirits. They were also used to carry precious mementos of loved ones, or prayers. The stitch you will learn to make your amulet bag, the peyote stitch is one of the most versatile stitches for beaders to have in their repertoire.

In this class you will be learning both tubular peyote stitch and flat odd count peyote stitch. To finish the amulet bag you will also learn how to make twisted and branched fringe.

This class will be held over two sessions. In the first session you will learn tubular peyote and begin on the body of the amulet bag. Students will need to work on their project during the week between classes. The following week you will learn how to make the bottom of the bag, the strap, flap and fringe.

Beginning beaders, as well as experienced beaders are welcome to join this workshop. A choice of patterns for two amulet bags will be provided.

The cost of this workshop is $90 for both half day sessions.
