Join Craft Lake City and Kenyan artisan Rispah Otieno of ZZOLARI for this hands-on Beaded Earrings Workshop! Rispah will demonstrate the essential techniques needed to create a custom hoop beaded earring that suits your individual personality and taste. Using wire, beads with a rainbow of color options, and elastic thread, Rispah will walk you through an introduction to this gorgeous jewelry-making technique. Attendees will each take home a pair of eye-catching custom beaded earrings & the skills to continue their jewelry making journey from home. During the instructional session, Rispah will share stories about her cultural ties to this art form & details about her growth experiences as a maker. Beginners welcome and all supplies provided for this workshop.
We’re thrilled to present this class as part of our New Americans Workshop Series in partnership with the International Rescue Committee, with funding from the Salt Lake Arts Council.
