Anishinaabe-Style Beaded Baby Moccasins: Online Course
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.
Students will need to provide:
- Thread scissors (craft scissors works too)
- Stable work space and a place to lay out your beads
- Good lighting, and a comfortable chair
- A laptop or tablet to join the Zoom class
Registration closes on December 25, 2021 to ensure there is time to get materials mailed to students in time for class.
