This looks good! Maria Rypan is giving a presentation on contemporary beadwork from the Ukraine at the Ukrainian National Museum in Chicago on June 2nd at 7pm. There will be examples of beadwork and bead books from four recent trips that she took to the Ukraine. This blog post has more information, and there’s a pdf to open on the museum’s page. Nastasiya Marusyk-Zhmendak will display her “gerdany” beadwork necklaces and bead-embroidered Ukrainian blouses or “sorochky.” Maria will have some of her own work, kits, and books.
