Make It: Blackfoot Beading Workshop

by Kait Kucy · 0 comments

While Navajo patterns are certainly a reigning trend across the globe right now, why not start your own local trend and learn something about traditional Blackfoot beadwork designs and about the First Nations Peoples of Alberta?

The Glenbow Museum has created a truly informative and fun beading workshop and this long weekend is your last chance to be part of the action. In the workshop, you will use the museum’s tabletop looms to create your own beaded artwork or bracelets.

Coinciding with their exhibition in the Blackfoot Gallery, Niitsitapiisinni: Our Way of Life, this  workshop is great for the whole family to take part in. Check it out in the ABC Discovery Room in the Glenbow Museum until Monday!
