Create a Ribbon Necklace

with Kay Vandervort

1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Tuition: $20 Materials: $15

Students will combine ribbon, yarn, and beads to create a unique necklace appropriate for either casual or dressy occasions. This project is a great way to use up odds and ends of craft supplies. Students will work from a cit of yarns, beads and ribbon. Previous beading experience is not needed.

About the instructor: Kay says, "As children we could get out of doing dishes if we read. We read a lot. And, we could watch television if we had a project we were working on while we watched. Hence, all my life I have gotten into the habit of having a lap project: jewelry making, embroidery, sewing, or experimenting with a variety of artistic medium.”

Kay has a degree in secondary education and taught both in high school and technical college before moving to a career in not-for-profit management. She has facilitated trainings at both regional and statewide conferences on topics related to non-profit marketing, volunteer management, and volunteer recruitment and screening. She has taught several jewelry and polymer clay classes in the past at the Ely Folk School.
