Saturday, August 26, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Iroquois Raised Beadwork is a rare style of Native American beadwork from the Eastern Great Lakes region. First executed with stone and shell, later with moose hair and hide, and now with velvet and glass beads, this beadwork protects and preserves Iroquois culture and world view.

During this workshop, each participant will create a piece of raised beadwork using patterns provided by the instructor, Karen Ann Hoffman of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin. The beadwork project will be used as a vehicle to explore Iroquois history, culture and society and its relationship to the dominant culture. At the end of the workshop, participants will leave with a deeper understanding of Native Woodland world view as well as a handcrafted piece.

Space is limited to 30 people, and pre-registration is required. Cost is $20 per person, $15 for Museum Members.
