From 1 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., Site Manager Mick Haven will instruct participants in the use of a bead loom to create their own one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Please note that pre-registration is required for this program, so call Mission Dolores before August 10th to reserve your spot! There is a 10 dollar fee for this program to cover materials. However, each participant will get to go home with their own bead loom.
Archaeologists recovered tons of small beads from excavations at Mission Dolores. Spanish explorers brought the beads with them from Europe to trade with Native Americans. If you’re curious what the Ayish near Mission Dolores were creating with these foreign objects, you won’t want to miss this program!
