MT. PLEASANT, MICHIGAN - The Ziibwing Center of Anishinabe Culture & Lifeways, owned and operated by the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan, will host a beadwork workshop from November 14 - 18 from 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm.
The Ziibwing Center is located at 6650 East Broadway in Mt. Pleasant.
Katrina Mitten, Miami Tribe of Oklahoma tribal citizen, will be the Artist-in-Residence. She has worked for over thirty years in bead embroidery traditions while transforming her creations into contemporary wearable art.
Through the use of semi-precious stones and the inspiration from their form and colors she creates one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets and earrings. She also beads traditional pieces including bags, cradleboards and jackets. It has been said that if something is lying around long enough she will bead it.
The workshop is a five-day workshop for adults 18 and over. Cost, which covers materials, is $35. Pre-registration is required and space is limited.
To reserve space, call 1.989.775.4744.
