About This Program
Get out the paintbrushes, wood and your creative flow for our hand-painted medallions (for necklaces), pins or earrings workshop! Learn how to make your own, unique pieces that have your individual stamp on them. In this workshop, learn techniques to help you create a piece from start to finish; from designing to painting and assembling! Create your own patterns and designs or use stencils of adinkra symbols for your pieces.
All you need to bring is your imagination.
