Beading Workshop with Martha Newell, Passamaquoddy


  • Abbe Museum 26 Mount Desert Street Bar Harbor, ME, 04609 United States (map)

Join us at the Abbe for an amazing opportunity to learn directly from beadwork artist Martha Newell of the Passamaquoddy Nation. Martha is well known for her beadwork and artistry as she blends the traditional with contemporary components. In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of beading and create their own peyote stitch bracelet to take home!

This is a two-day workshop from 11 am - 3 pm and attendees will need to attend both days in order to finish their project (you are free to attend only one day if that's all you have time for, however).
 
Registration is required, space is limited. Price: $15 members, $20 non-members. Sign up for membership and get the member price! Contact educator@abbemuseum.org for more information.
