Ancient peoples in New England and around the world used animal hides for clothing and accessories. Many of the surviving North American examples of “possible bags” are intricately decorated with beads. Modern artists continue this tradition and their work can be seen in art galleries and museums. In this workshop learn how hides were prepared and used to make clothing and other items. Then, make and bead your own synthetic or suede “possibles bag” to take home.
Advance registration required: $25 ($20 for Museum members) Includes materials fee. Adults and children ages 8 and above; children must be accompanied by an adult.
