Course Overview

Discover the designs, color, styles, and technique of traditional bead embroidery while crafting moccasins designed for baby feet. Create a gift that will be treasured for years to come (and that will stay on those adorable little feet). Students will design and sew a pair of moccasins using quality tanned deerhide. Ojibwe cultural specialist and Grand Portage band member Marcie McIntire will teach the steps required for assembly and help students to design a pattern to finish a pair of moccasins with bead embroidery. Your materials fee includes a kit containing woven fabric, leather, beads, needles, and thread. As time allows, additional beadwork projects will be included.

Note: Registration closes two weeks prior to class so that the instructor will have time to mail out the materials.
