Special Events 

Sami-inspired Bracelet Class: Sat., December 7th from 12-4  at St. Peder’s
Inspired by the reindeer-herding peoples of northern Scandinavia, create your own Sami-inspired bracelet.  Using materials from Sweden/Norway, students will braid spun wires (4% silver content) in a pattern of their choice and combine it with reindeer hide and antler buttons to create a unique bracelet. Must be able to do a small amount of hand sewing.  Samples will be available for inspiration. Class fee $40, plus $25 materials fee for each bracelet. Contact instructor Melba Granlund to register at 612-719-0435.
