We’re talking about Chinese knots!

Now students can fashion their own knotted jewelry in this three-session workshop. Artistic students will love creating beautiful, intricately woven knots while gaining an appreciation for this Chinese art form. Each class focuses on a different pair of knots, with a two-hour length that allows students to practice and master each knot at their own pace. The first session happens at East Columbia Branch on Saturday, September 18 at 2 pm. Register online or by calling 410.313.7701.
