Ribbon Dress/Shirt Workshop

March 7 @ 12:00 pm - March 8 @ 4:00 pm

$80

What’s the story behind the ribbon dress?

North America was colonized by several European countries and these various nations brought a wide assortment of goods to the continent to be traded with native groups.a

A lot of ordinary objects from Europe had a high market value for Indigenous tribes. Native peoples would adapt the purpose and uses of a lot of those items. Which is what happened with silk ribbons, which were used by Woodland Indians to create a form of appliqué decoration that Europeans had never seen before.

Participants will create their own ribbon dress and shirt.

COST: $80
