International Women’s Day Gyrls Night Out: Make Paper Beads
Date and Time: 03/08/2019 from -
Instructor: Desiree Dahl
Prerequisites: No experience needed.
Celebrate International Women’s Day by taking images of strong women and feminist themes and making paper beads. Learn to roll paper to make a variety of different shapes of beads. Finish your beads with lacquer to make them sturdy and highly functional. Bring paper samples if you like: magazines, comic books, feminist poetry, old music sheets. Add some texture with thread. No one will believe these beads are paper.
Beads to the left are from a Wonder Women comic book, a picture of Michele Obama dancing, a drawing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and a mural of a Chicana rally.
