Strengthen connections with friends during Children's Week
Friendship bracelets are a meaningful tradition that have been around for many years. While embroidery, macrame and knot-tying crafts have been around since ancient times, the modern friendship bracelet appears to have its roots in Central and South America. Friendship bracelets gained mainstream popularity in the 1970s when the world gravitated towards all things peace and love. We're continuing the fun practice of making friendship bracelets for Children's Week. Join us in our upcoming Zoom workshop where children will create their own beautiful friendship bracelet that they can gift to a special person in their life. Adults are invited to join us for some nostalgic fun, too! This year's theme for Children's Week is "children have the right to choose their friends and safely connect with others." Making and wearing a friendship bracelet is a symbol of the value and trust two friends share. Participants who register by Monday, 25 October will receive a material kit mailed to their door. The kit includes everything you need for the workshop, including beads and thread. After registering, you will be contacted by the IMA to obtain a mailing address. A Zoom link will be emailed to registrants by Tuesday, 26 October. Check out our other upcoming events here.
