Learn beaded earring making with library kits
Participation is limited, starting Nov. 1 until kits are gone.
The Park Rapids Area Library, and other locations in the Kitchigami Regional Library System (KRLS), will offer kits to learn how to create beaded hoop earrings.
The craft kit includes instructions and a link to an instructional video by Tawny Trottier Cale, an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and a descendant of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa and the Spirit Lake Nation.
According to a KRLS press release, Cale likes to share her beadwork knowledge with others, creating custom beadwork with her sisters as Sister Beads.
Each kit provides materials to make one pair of pierced earrings. Kits can be picked up at your local library starting on Nov. 1 and available until gone. Anyone aged 10 and older may participate. Participation is limited to 250 regionwide on a first-come, first-served basis.
