Fish Scale Earrings Workshop – Sunday, November 7, 2021
Fish Scale Art is a craft that began in the early 1900s and involves removing fish scales from a fish before it is cooked. The scales are then washed and dyed to be used for various art creations.
The dyed fish scales adhere to many materials including paper, cloth, leather, wood, and birchbark, so the artist has a very wide choice of materials to use. Designs can also include flowers of many designs.
In this class you will learn how to remove scales from a fish, and how to clean and dye them.
Participants will make a pair of earrings and receive a driftwood and birchbark demonstration.
