Queen’s students are encouraged to participate in Indigenous beading to decompress
Beading can act as an opportunity to destress.
This winter a new workshop emerges to showcase Indigenous beading in the City of Kingston.
The Kingston School of Art (KSOA) is hosting an Indigenous beading event on how to make traditional beaded ornaments. The event, “Tsyón:nis – You All Make It!” is run by teaching artist Liv Rondeau, and will be held on Nov. 19 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Front studio on 647 Princess St. The event will cost $55 for participants, with a minimum age requirement being 16 years old.
“The practice of beading has been widely recognized by Indigenous peoples as a way of recording cultural knowledge, relationships with land, treaties and promoting wellness within communities,” KSOA said in a statement to The Journal.
