Moccasin-making and Beading Workshop
With Naomi Smith Saturday November 14 and Sunday November 15. Cost: $150
Over the two-day workshop Naomi Smith of Black Tulip Designs will teach participants to create a beautiful pair of moccasins with beaded vamp and cuff.
Naomi is a Native artisan and educator. She is actively involved in educating others about the ways of the First Nations people of the Woodlands and Northeastern area from a historical and contemporary perspective, often through the story of beads. For over 20 years Naomi has designed and created traditional Native beadwork, leather craft, moose hair embroidery, quill work, sweetgrass or birch bark basket making and adornment, always valuing these Sacred materials throughout her creative process.
Honouring our traditions is my voice within and beyond my Culture and Community. Traditionally there is no word for “art” in Native languages yet artistry and visual expression are critical in defining who we are as First Nations people. It is this path I wish to exemplify through my teachings and my work – Naomi Smith
