Beadwork is a prominent practice in many Native American communities throughout Turtle Island. Beadwork, quillwork, bone-work, and appliqué are often seen at pow-wows and many tribal cultural events. 

Join Bizhiki for a session of Native American beading. We will cover some of the historical and contemporary uses of beads, while sharing techniques and common practices to achieving nice-looking end products. Lead instructor Sheena Cain (Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe, Red Lake Ojibwe) will guide participants in beading their own small projects. All skill levels welcome to attend. Feel free to bring your own equipment and material; beads, needles, thread, material are all supplied for participants. 

Participation is limited to 20 people. Free tickets (external link) are required and are available on Eventbrite starting on Monday, March 20, at 8:00 am.
