SAMI BRACELET WORKSHOP
January 12, 2019
Class fee: $100 – supplies extra
Instructor: Linda Mihely
In this one-day class, you will make your own Sami bracelet with the traditional materials from Sweden. You will learn the basic braid and the bracelet construction techniques. Several leather color choices (besides the traditional black) are available. You will make your bracelet entirely by hand! Once you know the basics, your imagination can take flight and you can create layered braids.
Basic experience with needle-and-thread, hand sewing is necessary. It is recommended that you bring a thimble, sharp small-tipped scissors, and a pair of small needle-nose pliers.
For best results, preview bracelet leather colors ahead of time so that you have time to shop for and match your thread to the leather.
