Beading at the Museum

Learn to bead or come join us in the social beading circle!

The workshops are to learn how to bead different items. In beginner classes you will be learning to bead key rings, or a poppy for example depending on the season. In the advanced courses, there is the possibility of moccasins, mittens and fire bag making. Part of the beadwork for advanced classes will be done on our own time.
