Gerdan is a traditional Ukrainian loom beading, which is used to make necklaces in bright, geometric designs. Olesya Hlibka and Ganna Glibka will teach this age-old craft practice using small take-home looms for participants. Note, this is a slightly different technique than Indigenous loom beading, so come and try something new! During the workshop, everyone will learn how to make their own Gerdan.
