About the Cross-Cultural Beading Circle
Do you like gathering in person to bead? If so register to come to MAWA on the scheduled Monday evenings. Do you prefer to gather virtually? Join the circle via Zoom. Everyone is invited to learn a in a welcoming atmosphere. No experience necessary. Novice and experienced beaders of all cultures, ages and genders are welcome. Some sessions are unstructured and provide an opportunity to work on our own projects, together. Most feature a guest beader, who will share their history with beading and their techniques. When there is a guest, a kit of materials (incl. beads, thread, cloth and leather) will be available for you at MAWA. If you are joining in via Zoom, you can pick it up in advance, or it can be delivered to you in Winnipeg.
Everyone welcome. This workshop is offered twice, to create opportunity for more participants (do not enroll in both sessions).
