Opulence: We Bead Everything

Hosted by lead artist and facilitator, Stacey Fayant, this group is to create supportive space for Indigenous artists whose practice is primarily focussed on beadwork. Participants will be expected to meet weekly via virtual and in-person meetings while exploring areas such as tufting, quill, and fur, to incorporate into their individual beading projects. In alignment with the Metis cultural practice of sitting around the kitchen table, creating new work, talking, and learning, participants will work on expanding on their skills through guest artist workshops, group sharing, and peer skill exchange.
