Thanks for your interest. This workshop is sold out. To be added to the waitlist for a future mukluk workshop, please contact Rachel at [email protected]

 

Three-day Workshop. Participants must attend all three days.

  • Sunday, December 6 • 10:30 am to 3:30 pm

Join us for an in-person, socially-distanced mukluk workshop with artist Gloria Beckman. Taking place in the Manitoba Museum’s Alloway Hall, you will learn how to make your own pair of beaded, fur trimmed mukluks, just in time for the winter season. You will have a chance to see some of the Manitoba Museum’s collection of mukluks and other footwear, with an artifact showcase and talk by Dr. Amelia Fay, Curator of the HBC Collection.

When you register, you will be asked to identify if you are registering with others. A seating plan will be established so that you can sit with your friends and/or family. This workshop includes all the supplies you need to complete your mukluks, and each participant will receive their own supply kit; however, you are welcome to bring along your own supplies if you prefer.

Masks are required to be worn by all participants and staff for the duration of the workshop.

To be added to the waitlist for a future mukluk workshop, please contact Rachel at [email protected].

About the Artist

Gloria Beckman has been an instructor for many years, teaching moccasin and mukluk workshops for schools, in communities, and for the Manitobah Story Boot School. Spending many years working within Aboriginal language education within the province of Manitoba, Gloria believes in the importance of incorporating various components of cultures and traditions in language learning. Reflecting on the past few years teaching mukluks and moccasins, she says, “It has been uplifting to see the pride in the students eyes while working on their beaded pahkīkinaskisina/leather footwear. Students learning to make mukluks and moccasins connect with their cultural identity, stitch by stitch and bead by bead. Beading is a form of meditation that gives students a feeling of self pride and accomplishment through their creations. An empowered human only wants the best for all humanity. The stories I have heard from people I’ve met through teaching have given me hope for a better future as more walk away with an ancestral skill.”

 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this workshop will not include a behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum vaults. Instead, artifacts will be brought down to Alloway Hall for viewing by participants. Participants are invited to visit the Museum Galleries for a self-guided visit after the workshop or during breaks; admission is included in the cost of registration.
