This one day workshop with Alberta-rose Bear will cover the history of beads and the beadwork of Saskatchewan Indigenous people. Quillwork was a technique that many Indigenous groups used to embellish their clothing and objects. European fur traders brought glass beads and Indigenous people quickly adapted to this new material. The workshop will include a visit to the beadwork collection in the First Nations Gallery and a presentation on the Nottingham collection by Aboriginal Studies curator, Dr. Evelyn Siegfried. Participants will create a pair of beaded earrings or a small keychain.
