Chigirie is a form of washi, handmade Japanese paper, that is produced only in solid colors which artisans carefully tear into fragments to create distinct color areas. In this workshop, participants will use both chigirie and washi to cover wooden beads of various shapes. They will then use their decorated beads combined with commercial components to create a truly unique necklace and earrings set.

Please bring a pair of sharp scissors, a snack, and a desire to practice and learn technical skills such as looping, wrapping, and clasping. Everything else will be supplied. $64 members, $80 non-members, plus $25 materials fee due to the instructor at the beginning of class (cash only). Museum admission included. Limited to 12 participants.
