Learn a rich cultural tradition, while learning to make beautiful Yemenite embroidered bracelets Wednesday, March 4, from 2:30-5:30 p.m. through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, OLLI, at Casper College.

Participants in the class, “Yemenite Embroidered Bracelets,” OLLI 100037, will not only learn about the art form, but will make bracelets from gold, silk, and cotton pearl threads using Israeli Yemenite designs, according to instructor India Hayford.

Students will each receive a kit with instructions and material for two bracelets and are asked to bring to class a basic sewing kit containing scissors, an awl, and a white chalk marking pencil. Those with visual challenges may want to also bring a small lamp or magnifier, said Hayford.

For more information or to register for “Yemenite Embroidered Bracelets,” contact lifelong learning specialist Jeaneece Schmidt at 307-268-2099 or jeaneece.schmidt@caspercollege.edu.
