As part of BC Culture Days 2021, this workshop will introduce participants to creating a pouch made of leather or fabric with basic beadwork. The focus will be building practical skills of beading and sewing. Supplies will be available but feel free to bring your own to add your own sense of flair to your project.
While participants are encouraged to create a leather pouch for themself or a loved one, the group will be engaging in storytelling as a means to reflect on the meaning of medicine pouches and what are things they would like to carry with them in their day-to-day lives.
The following COVID-19 safety considerations will be enforced: chairs and tables will be set up to meet social distancing guidelines, wearing masks while in the space are mandatory and hand sanitizer will be provided at every station. Rules will be posted throughout the venue.
