$50, all materials provided. This is not a workshop for beginners. To register, email a summary of your previous experience to Adriana at [email protected].

This workshop will respectfully explore this challenging practice that long predates contact. It will be held over two days because working with quills is very time-intensive and requires patience.

For those who participated in the May 2022 workshop or have previous quillwork experience. Cost: $50

  • Mona Eva Moquin was born and raised in a big Métis family in La Broquerie. She began working with quills just after she started beading in 2015. Her artwork can be seen in the exhibit Storied Objects: Métis Art in Relation at the Remai Modern in Saskatoon until mid-May. She enjoys learning from grandmother pieces created more than 100 years ago, and hopes others will honour and love quillwork as much as she does.
