Anishinaabe-Style Bead Embroidery & Moccasin Sewing
Discover the designs, color, styles, and technique of traditional bead embroidery as you work with Ojibwe cultural specialist and Grand Portage band member Marcie McIntire, sewing and decorating a pair of moccasins in this course. You will design a pair of moccasins to make, choosing from either a baby or child’s moccasin pattern or an adult-sized pair. Using quality tanned deerhide, Marcie will teach the steps required for assembly and help you design a pattern to finish your pair of moccasins with bead embroidery. Your materials fee includes the fabric, interfacing, beads, needles and thread. As time allows, additional beadwork projects will be included. Note, important instructions about connecting with the instructor will be provided after registration; please take note and respond in a timely fashion.
