Come to the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History and explore the artistic teachings of Amah Mutsun artisans. People have utilized natural materials gathered from the California coast for hundreds of years for food, tools and cultural traditions. Learn traditional skills and cultural teachings of our local Amah Mutsun Tribal Band. Create beautiful jewelry and crafts using traditional materials under the guidance of Amah Mutsun artisans. Adult participants will make beaded jewelry while younger participants practice using tule to create twine and toys, and learn about other important cultural relationships with plants and animals.
This workshop will take place in the Museum’s native plant garden and amphitheater (weather dependent) or inside the Museum’s workspace. Please dress for cool weather.
