About this event

Community Beadwork Event at Rotary Park, hosted by Colouring it Forward Reconciliation Society and the Crescent Heights Community Association

Following our Artwalk, come join us for a fun-filled afternoon of beading in Rotary Park! This event is all about coming together as a community to learn and create beautiful beadwork together. We will be working on artwork which hangs in the interior of this Trappers tent (pictured). This tent, unveiled just last year, is owned by Parks Calgary and pops up at various green spaces for community events.

Slowly, through workshops like this one, community members are adding beads to the floral frames of the extra large panels which hold archival photographs, illustrating the history of the Métis people in Mohkinsts’is (Calgary). We are inviting you to come add your own unique touch!

Whether you’re a total beginner or an experienced beadworker, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. All supplies will be provided. Let’s celebrate creativity and culture together through the art of beadwork. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to connect with the community and unleash your creativity!
