Ukrainian beadwork is the art of stringing beads using a needle and thread or fine wire, creating adornments (prykrasy) of various forms, widths and lengths. Traditionally worn to protect the wearer, beadwork necklaces, collars, bracelets and headbands remain an integral part of the costume in western Ukraine. Every region uses specific colours and patterns in their adornments, with symbolism dating to pagan times. In this workshop you will learn a basic technique of Ukrainian beadwork.
