ManitoAhbee, Metis Sashmaking workshop


The education component of the ManitoAhbee festival included me and my sashmaking workshop. Three mornings this week I offered a three-part presentation: 1) images of metis sashes and some of their stories. 2) how sashes are made, overview of loom weaving and sashweaving. 3) audience participation, two activities to instruct and permit students to leave with their very own ‘wrist sash’.
Thanks to the help of friends and former students it went very well, as you can see in the happy faces of the participants:
