Zenbaakewin (Ribbonwork)—A Workshop with Margaret Noodin
Originally scheduled for Sun. May 2, but has had to be postponed. Please check back soon for more information.
Cost: $35 General | $30 Members of WP
This workshop will offer an opportunity to read the select poems and images together and discuss ways culture can be embedded in material and lyrical arts. We will take time to draft something of our own and then share our work. The last part of the workshop will be the exchange of a song in Ojibwe, something to learn and teach others later.
