If These Beads Could Talk
February 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$40 – $45
EHS is proud to present a workshop by Malinda Grey, If These Beads Could Talk.
Malinda Gray, from Lac Seul First Nation, is a PhD candidate in Indigenous studies, attending Trent University in Peterborough, Ont., where she wrote her thesis about beads and researches bead artists.
Gray said Indigenous beadwork art in the past was considered by many as souvenirs for tourists or trinkets. Today, bead artists and their styles are being noticed and taken more seriously, with their work seen as an art form.
