This online program is a cultural collections investigation and art-making workshop in which we'll explore the unique and universal reasons we adorn ourselves. We'll share ancient and contemporary adornments from BCM's collection, and model the making of adornments that families can create at home using paper, fabric, and other upcycled materials.

Highlight #1: A close look at collections objects in the Museum's storerooms
Highlight #2: Intro to hands-on project- making paper and fabric beads
