The history of Bead-Crochet is unknown. It surfaced in 18th century France as a technique to adorn fashions of the wealthy. But there is a much older tradition: the creation of Bead-Crochet snakes, practiced in the Ottoman Empire and surrounding countries. Bead-Crochet is now considered to be one of many traditional Ukrainian techniques and is still actively practiced in Ukraine today. Come and learn how to read a pattern to combine crochet and beads in the creation of a piece of jewelry.

Presented in partnership with Oseredok: Ukrainian Cultural and Educational Centre
