Intro to Indigenous Beading Workshop
This workshop will teach participants how to create a small flat-stitched beaded project using a variety of techniques including 1-needle and 2-needle.
This workshop is geared for beginners but all levels are welcome! Due to limited space, priority registration will be given to First Nations, Metis, or Inuit people but is open to everyone.
The workshop is free and a great opportunity to learn about the positive impact traditional Indigenous art forms have on community.
All materials will be provided along with snacks. If you prefer to use your own beads/material, feel free to bring them to the workshop!
It will be led by Courtney Milne and Stefanie Okemow Kuzmiski. Courtney is a Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe woman, beadwork artist and has been an active community worker for several years. Stefanie is of Cree and European ancestry and currently lives in Toronto. Her work has focused on cellular animations that enable us to learn about our bodies, and our connection to the world around us.
