This workshop will now take place at Creative Manitoba.
Aj’a will be teaching flat beading to make a beautiful set of beaded earrings.
This single needle method is great for beginners!
MAWA has decided to start charging a small materials fee for these workshops. Unfortunately, when programs are free, some people sign up but do not show up. This wastes materials and staff time preparing kits that are never used, unnecessarily increasing program costs. Worst of all, folks who want to participate are unable, because the session is fully booked. Because of this, MAWA needs to start charging for this program. If finances are a barrier, please contact Niamh at [email protected].
Aj’a writes, “Aniin bozhoo tansi, my spirit name is Makade Makwa. The name I was given in this physical world is Aj’a. I am Anishinaabe from Pinaymootang First Nation on my maternal side. On my paternal side I am Red River Métis from St. Adolph. I am passionate about my culture and identity as a First Nations person. I am grateful for my ancestors who have kept our culture and teachings alive so that we can live mino bimaatiziwin, the good life. Meegwetch, Ekosi. “
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). Register above
and if you find you cannot attend, please cancel with ample lead time so folks on the waiting list can participate.
$10 materials fee. All welcome! Spaces are limited (17)
