Indigenous Arts Series — Workshop #5:

Beaded Poppies with Danka Brewer

Join us on Sunday, October 23 from 11AM–2PM for a beaded poppy workshop with Danka Brewer of Kokum Makwa Cultural Enterprises.

In this workshop we will be creating our own beaded poppy pins by beading a pattern of a poppy on red felt and creating a pin when we are done. Each participant will be given materials for two beaded poppies.

During the workshop we will also be talking about the role of warriors and the teachings that warriors follow in their day to day life.
