Workshops & Presentations

For generations, First Nations people have been sharing their traditional skills and knowledge with one another. The Festival workshop series is an opportunity for our participating artists to share this skill and creativity with you. Become inspired as you take part in one or more hands on workshops exploring disciplines such as wood carving, painting, beading, moose hair tufting, traditional sewing, stained glass, birch bark basket, bentwood box and jewellery making, and much more. Beginner to advanced workshops are offered, running 4-8 hours in length.

Please note

Participating artists must register for workshops through the Visual Arts Coordinator, Marjie Cowell at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
