African Bead Safari

Jul 18 - 22, 2022

9AM-3PM

Concept

Pack your imagination and join us on a bead safari to Africa! Students “visit” the Zulu, Ndebele, and Xhosa peoples of South Africa and the Samburu of Kenya to learn some of their unusual bead-weaving techniques. These techniques are then applied to make colorful earrings, bracelets, necklaces and vessels using seed beads, wire, needle and thread. Pictures and examples of authentic African beadwork nurture inspiration as participants choose from a wide variety of colorful beads to make their own fun and unique projects.

Lodging & Meals

Anderson Ranch closely follows guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Colorado and the Pitkin County Health Department. In order to operate safely during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Anderson Ranch has made significant modifications to our housing and meal offerings.

Summer 2022 workshop participants ages 13 and up will be required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination. Studio program participants are required to show proof that they have received the complete Covid-19 vaccine (i.e., two weeks have passed after receiving the second dose of either the Moderna or Pfizer MRNA vaccines or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine). Additionally, if six months have passed since completing the Moderna or Pfizer series or two months have passed since receiving the J & J vaccine, then a booster is also required. Ideally the booster would have been administered at least two weeks prior to coming to Anderson Ranch.

We have established a Business Safety Plan with added layers of precaution that prioritizes the health and safety of our staff, students, faculty and guests while continuing to provide you with the Anderson Ranch experience that you know and enjoy.

Housing is limited and includes shared and private lodging options. Reservations will be managed on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you reserve housing, the better your chance of receiving your preferred option. Please note: Workshop costs do not include accommodations.
