Learn to make beaded Orange Shirt Day pins with Gerri Pangman. This is a new style from past years.

Five pins shaped like small t-shirts made of orange felt and beads lay on white fur with a braid of sweetgrass above.

Orange Shirt pins by Gerri Pangman

Orange Shirt Day is named in honour of Phyllis Webstad, who had her new orange shirt taken away on her first day of residential school. Orange Shirt Day honours residential school survivors and remembers those who did not survive. It is an opportunity for all peoples of this land to discuss colonization, past and present, and gather in a spirit of reconciliation.

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. Unless noted, a free materials kit (incl. beads, thread, cloth and leather) will be available for you at MAWA.

Each instructor will offer their workshop twice, to create opportunity for more participants (do not enroll in both sessions of the same workshop). Spaces are limited. To register, add the workshop to your shopping cart above and follow the checkout process. You will not be asked for payment information.

If you find you cannot attend, PLEASE cancel so folks on the waiting list can participate.

Open to everyone! Free, but registration is required. All materials provided.

This workshop is offered twice to allow for more participants. Please only register for one session.
