體驗簡介

Join Lisa Shepard of Cultured Expressions for a relaxing creative session, where you'll STRING YOUR OWN WEST AFRICAN WAISTBEADS! First, you'll learn about the cultural significance of waistbeads, an important adornment worn by women in West African countries for centuries. You'll discover why and how they are worn -- sometimes purely fashion, sometimes spiritual, sometimes flirty. Learn about the importance of color selection, proper fit, knotting and more. Then you'll choose from a wide variety of colors and types of beads to create your own strand on easy-to-wear stretch cord. Finally, you'll be able to hand-stitch a simple drawstring pouch to store them in. Waistbeads are an accessory you’ll love wearing them every day, especially when you've strung them yourself!
Other things to note
The class lasts about 2 hours. Our studio is an easy train ride from NYC via NJ Transit; also easy to reach from Philadelphia. There are various eateries and cafes within a 1-2 block walk. Just bring yourself and be prepared to relax and enjoy a creative, culturally engaging experience.

I have over 20 years' experience running my own business, Cultured Expressions, a company that began with the publishing of my first of three books in 1999, "African Accents: Fabrics & Crafts to Decorate Your Home". Thru my company, I promote the creative use of African textiles, beads and embellishments for DIY crafters, and sewing and quilting enthusiasts. In 2017 I opened a sewing and quilting studio in the Arts District of downtown Rahway. I've also lived in Rahway since 2005. Over the years, I've lectured and taught hundreds of hands-on workshops in sewing, quilting and crafts, all within the specialty of African textiles and culture. My students enjoy my relaxed teaching approach, a mix of extensive knowledge, humor and patience. Beginners welcome!
