Cross-Cultural Beading Group with Guest Beader Zipporah Machuki

  • Monday, November 7, 2016
  • 7:00pm – 9:00pm
  • MAWA, 611 Main Street

MAWA’s cross-cultural beading group meets to informally work on their own projects together. Everyone—of all backgrounds, ages and genders—is invited to share their skills, to learn and to work independently in a convivial atmosphere. No experience necessary. Novices and experienced beaders alike are welcome. Some free materials are provided (beads, thread, cloth and leather) or you can bring your own.

This meeting will also have special guest Maasai beader Zipporah Machuki.

No need to register, just come! Free!

  • Zipporah came to Canada in 2013 through a scholarship and is working on her PHD in Medical Microbiology at the University of Manitoba. She lives in Winnipeg with her husband and two children. She learned beading in school in Kenya, which is taught to all children as part of fine arts classes in grade 1 through 12.
