Throughout Africa, amulets, decorated pouches, and charms are worn to bring good fortune or protect their owner. Learn more about this ancient practice and create your own to ensure wellbeing. 

This workshop is presented as part of the museum’s series of Workshop Wednesdays. Every first Wednesday of the month, stop by the museum for drop-in classes from trained teachers. Stay for as little or as long as you like to complete your masterpiece. All skill levels and ages welcome; participants under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult. No registration is required, but please remember that these events are first-come, first-served.
