Beading Workshop for Teens!




On Saturday, June 15 from 12:00 - 4:00 pm, Abbe Educator George Neptune will offer a beading workshop designed specifically for teens.  Native people across North America are well known for taking an introduced material and incorporating it into their oldest traditions. Perhaps the most known example is the use of glass beads; after trading with European visitors, fine lines of brightly colored glass beads joined designs of bone and shell on the traditional regalia of many tribes. In this workshop, participants will make their own pair of beaded feather earrings. The program is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Please contact George to reserve your space at either 207-288-3519 or george@abbemuseum.org.
