This workshop is now full. Thanks to everyone who registered!

Candace Neumann will teach how to make a happy face pin to welcome spring: a simple beaded face on smoked moosehide, with caribou tufting for the cheeks. This pin will be backed with melton cloth and can be filled with medicines for some extra plumpness and sacredness (optional).

About the Cross-Cultural Beading Circle

Everyone is invited to learn and/or work independently in a welcoming atmosphere. No experience necessary. Novice and experienced beaders of all cultures, ages and genders are welcome. Sessions feature a guest beader, who will share their history with beading and their techniques. A materials kit (incl. beads, thread, cloth and leather) will be available.

Each instructor will offer their workshop twice, to create opportunity for more participants (do not enroll in both sessions of the same workshop). If you find you cannot attend, please cancel with ample lead time so folks on the waiting list can participate.

If finances are a barrier, please speak with Niamh at [email protected].

$10 materials fee. All welcome! Spaces are limited (17)
