Gerdan Making

Gerdan Making  

Maria Rypan is a well-known bead artist, researcher and recognized expert on the “gerdany” Ukrainian-style of beadwork since 1995. She loves teaching, creating visually-oriented instructions, producing her kit line and lecturing on beading and global folk arts in Canada, USA and Ukraine.

During this workshop Ms. Rypan will teach participants the art of "beadweaving." The "sylianka" was once created by using multiple needles. Now we can get the same effect using a single needle and paying attention to colour placement. Learn basic netting for creating your own gerdan. Workshop fee of $40 includes materials for sampler.

Additional beads in your choice of colours and supplies (thread, clasp or kits) will also be available for purchase at the workshop.
