Workshop Wednesdays 2020: Pendants that Please

March 4 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Pendants that Please
1. Credit Line: Gift of the Roy and Brigitta Mitchell Collection (Ghana)
March 4
1:30–3:30 p.m.

Throughout Africa, pendants of varying intricacy, material, symbolism, and meaning reflect individual cultures and regions. Pendants and charms are not only a way of “dressing up” and feeling elegant, but also indicate one’s status, bring good fortune, and protect their owners. Examine the complex designs of the various jewelry and metal objects on exhibit before creating a piece of your own.

Participants under 16 must be accompanied by an adult
First come, first served
