Métis Artist Talks: Métis Quillwork Brooch Workshop
Join MNBC's Ministry of Culture, Heritage and Language (CHL) for the Métis Artist Talks: Métis Quillwork Brooch Workshop with Métis artist Mara Kersey. In this workshop, you will delve into Mara's experience as a Métis artist in British Columbia and explore the intricate art of quillwork. We look forward to creating Métis Quillwork Brooches with you!
This workshop is limited to 40 people, and a waitlist will be created for additional registrants. Kits will be mailed out to participants. We will prioritize new participants when completing registrations. Therefore, if you recently registered for another Métis Artist Talks workshop (i.e. quillwork), your spot may be given to a new participant.
