This craft workshop will explore the art of tagua dyeing and jewelry making. Tagua nuts, also known as vegetable ivory, grow in the spiny pods of the tagua tree, indigenous to the South American countryside. Artisans slice, carve and dye the nuts to create eye-catching jewelry pieces!
Come dye a handful of beautiful, artisan-carved tagua beads to create your own one of a kind jewelry piece which can be entered into our design contest in partnership with Minga Fair Trade Imports! The first, second and third place winners will each receive a Ten Thousand Villages giftcard and your design may be selected for a future Minga collection! Come enjoy crafts, community, snacks and refreshments (to get your creative juices flowing)!
The class fee of $35.00 per person covers all refreshments and use of supplies at the workshop. Space is limited. RSVP with advanced payment is required. Please call 913-642-8368 to reserve a space and submit payment.
Workshop will be held at Ten Thousand Villages Overland Park, 7947 Santa Fe Drive, Overland Park.
