Introduction to Métis Sash weaving and oral stories carried in our Sash

with Candace Lloyd


The Métis sash is used to identify our culture.

Participants in this workshop will learn to weave a bracelet or bookmark-sized sash, led by artist and educator Candace Lloyd. The finger weaving techniques Candace will demonstrate have been used by Métis individuals for centuries; Candace will also share knowledge of the historical context of the Métis Sash and oral stories. The skills learned will allow individuals to weave a sash of any size—the only difference is the number and length of strands. Participants will be given extra yarn to take home to pursue future projects. 



Date: Sunday, July 17

Time: 1PM – 4PM (note: the workshop may end early)

Location: Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning, Activity Room (Room 108)

Tickets: $25 + HST/fees  |  Materials included
