Learn how to make your own pair of handcrafted moccasins in our upcoming workshop with master beader Jennine Krauchi. Taking place over three sessions, the workshop focuses on the Métis split toe moccasin style and two-needle beading.
Participants will spend the first two-hour session learning how to bead on the moccasin vamp. At the second session, we visit the Museum collections behind-the-scenes with Dr. Maureen Matthews, Curator of Cultural Anthropology. Participants are introduced to the various styles of moccasin design, and learn about the history of the split toe moccasin, often unlined and worn in summer months. After the tour, we begin the construction of our moccasins. During the third session, we continue constructing our moccasins.
This workshop includes all materials required to complete your own pair of beaded split toe moccasins. The moccasin pattern will be provided.
