About this event

In this one-day workshop led by traditional crafter LeAnn Wotishek, you will learn to create a pair of dentalium shell earrings to take home. Dentalium shells are tusk-like shells commonly used in traditional Native American art. They are derived from the shells of scaphopod mollusks and can be crafted into many different things, including wearable jewelry. Registration is required three days prior to the event date.
