Are you ready for another new twist on tradition? Using pewter wire thread and a macramé style weave, students will create a beautiful pendant with a silver drop. Kit materials will provide you the option to create either a round or V-shaped pendant suspended from enough leather cord to accommodate your preferred necklace length, or you can use a chain of your own. No previous experience is necessary, but a willingness to use hand tools is required. Kits come with all supplies needed with the exception of pliers. Two flat nose pliers are required, but if you don’t own a pair they can be purchased in addition to your kit. You might just be someone’s favorite Secret Santa this Christmas!
The listed class time is one Zoom session on Wednesday, November 10 (6:00-7:30pm CT).
Supplies: Students will need to provide a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection. In addition to the kit, two sets of flatnose pliers (6.5 mm) are needed and may be purchased by phone from the Museum Store at (563) 382-9682.
