Upcoming Workshops

 

Ribbon Shirt & Skirt Making

March 7 & 8, 2020

 

Ribbon Skirt/Shirt Making Workshop at the Woodland Cultural Centre.

By participating in this 2 day workshop you will be  guided through a step by step process of making a ribbon skirt or a ribbon shirt using a sewing machine.

Indigenous people are a very progressive people, meaning we have been adapting different materials that have been made available to us over time.  When Europeans came to Turtle Island they brought many things including woven fabrics.  These fabrics were then used as trade materials between Europeans and Indigenous peoples which have had a huge influence on traditional Indigenous outfits.  Today ribbon shirts and skirts are significant items in the Indigenous fashion world.

Facilitating the workshop will be Melanie Bomberry.

Participants must bring their own material and ribbon.
