In conjunction with its current exhibition In the Land of Pasaquan: The Story of Eddie Owens Martin (on view through March 11, 2018), Intuit welcomes Chicago-based jewelry artist Paula Addington for a jewelry making workshop.

Eddie Owens Martin (1908-1986), also known as St. EOM, was the creator of Pasaquan and a visionary artist influenced by many artistic traditions--Mesoamerican, African, and eastern art—which are reflected in the original drawings, sculptures, paintings, regalia and jewelry on view at Intuit.

Paula Addington’s artistic necklaces are known for their bold, colorful and dramatic flair. In this make-and-take workshop, Addington will help you create your own vibrant beaded necklaces, pendants and other items inspired by the flamboyant spirit and bright colors in the works of Eddie Owens Martin.

Participants will enjoy a hands-on session in an informal creative setting with instruction on process, materials and techniques. All supplies are included, though attendees are encouraged to bring any pendants or other materials they would like to incorporate into their jewelry. Light refreshments will be provided. Advance registration required.
