This is not a workshop for complete beginners. Have you attended a quillwork workshop in the past, tried teaching yourself or learned from a friend or relative? Then this workshop will help you advance your skills!
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.
$50, all materials provided.
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.
