Traditional Bone Bead Workshop

Traditional Bone Bead Workshop

Presented in partnership with the Peel Aboriginal Network

Join us for a beading workshop led by Tabitha Shurgold of the Peel Aboriginal Network. This walk-in workshop will be suitable for all ages and skill levels.

Traditional Beading has been a part of the Indigenous traditions and culture for centuries. Indigenous cultural traditions teach us to use every part of the animal, to not waste anything. The animal's hide and bones are used to create jewelry and regalia.

Presented in the context of Amy Malbeuf's exhibition, Tensions, at the Small Arms Inspection Building, January 5 to February 9, 2019.
