Workshop to Create "Keepsake" Beaded Picture Frame Offered by Ganondagan April 14

In Victorian times, many Iroquois women found a “souvenir” market for their handmade raised beadwork whimsies. These items included picture frames; needle, scissor, and eyeglass cases; boot-shaped pincushions; and more.

Ganondagan is offering the opportunity to create these delightful velvet and beaded picture frames in its next workshop for adults on Saturday, April 14 at Ganondagan State Historic Site Visitors Center (1488 State Route 444 in Victor) from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Site Interpreter Ronnie Reitter (Seneca) will take participants through the process of making and finishing a complete 5” x 6 ½“ picture frame.

As space is limited, pre-registration by April 10 is encouraged. Participants should bring scissors, beading needles, thread, and an optional bag lunch. Workshop fees are $35/Friends of Ganondagan members, $40/non-members, and includes a kit to make one frame. For information /registration, visit www.ganondagan.org/workshops/BeadedFrames.html or call 585-742-1690.
