Winter Workshops

The winter time in this region has traditionally been a time to gather and warm up by sharing through story, arts, and creativity. On select dates throughout the winter we will be hosting and facilitating various workshop events to help keep this community spirit alive. Workshops might include: dreamcatcher making, moccasin making, leather and beadworking, drum making, traditional Métis fingerweaving, storytelling or song writing workshops, and more. All supplies are included and fees will range depending on the project.

Upcoming workshops: Dreamcatcher Making – March 15, and April 12 (6:00pm-9:00pm). Tickets are available here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/dreamcatcher-workshop-tickets-20586462664?aff=es2
