Beginners Beading Workshop

Beginners Beading with Emma Smith
Beads have always been an important aspect of Indigenous culture, they represented our connection to Mother Earth as they were made up of materials that came from her.

Rocks, bones, and shells were often hand carved, an art form in itself, into beads to adorn clothing. This workshop is designed to explore the contemporary use of beading in Indigenous communities and provide a lesson on the basic steps of beading. The pendant shown is a circle that represents the circle of life. Cost: $45 + HST
