Event Description

A brand new Indigenous Perspective Workshops with instructor Natalie Pepin this summer! 

Participants in our Introduction to Working with Animal Fibres Workshops will experience hands-on learning, discussion, and storytelling. Woven through the workshop participants will learn the importance of animal fibers in Indigenous artistic practices and gain experience with Traditional skills including tufting and horsehair embroidery. 

Participants will spend time walking throughout our nature trails to gain inspiration and create their own art samples with caribou and horsehair to take home. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of the relationship between culture, the land, and arts.

The workshop ultimately lays a foundation for which to view and relate to Indigenous arts in the future.

Monday, Wednesday & Saturday, May 30-June25
6:30 - 9:00 pm
Tickets: $95 + GST

Please note, due to the dexterity required to handle small sharp objects this workshop is recommended for those 14 years of age and older.
