Audubon Presents Dragonfly Pendant Workshop in Dunkirk, Saturday, June 24

Jamestown, NY –  No experience is necessary for you to design and create an eye-catching dragonfly pendant from beautiful glass beads. 

On Saturday, June 24, the Audubon Community Nature Center is presenting a Dragonfly Pendant Workshop at the Fredonia Technology Incubator, 214 Central Avenue in Dunkirk.

At the 1-3 p.m. workshop, you can make a colorful pendant in the shape of a dragonfly using Swarovski crystals, seed beads, glass “dagger” beads for the wings, and tiny metal spacers.

Beadwork artist and teacher Anne Jackson will instruct you in making this charming piece of jewelry that you will be proud to wear or give as a special gift. A member of the Chautauqua County Society of Artists, Jackson teaches beading privately as well as at Audubon.

Participants are reminded to bring their glasses if they need them for close-up work.

Enrollment is limited. The fee is $44, $38 for Nature Center members, and includes all materials. Paid reservations are required by Sunday, June 18, 2017, and can be made by clicking through Plan Your Visit/Attend a Program at auduboncnc.org. If full, call (716) 569-2345 to be put on a waiting list.

Founded in 1986, the NCCF is committed to improving the community through the promotion of local philanthropy, strategic grant making and community leadership. The organization has distributed over 9.5 million dollars in the form of grants and scholarships within the community.
