BYOBeads Indigenous ONLINE Beading Circle (East End Arts)
“BYOBeads Indigenous ONLINE Beading Circle
Online Using Zoom & Registration via EventBrite
Thursday Evenings in February & March
7-9pm – tune in any time!
Led by Queer Metis bead-artist, novelist, & film-maker, Adam Garnet Jones and hosted by East End Arts, BYOBeads is an intimate opportunity for traditional bead artists, hobby-beaders just learning their craft, experts, elders, and enthusiasts to gather and work together on current project(s), share skills, and show off the beautiful things they’ve been working on!
Once again, we are thrilled to be partnering with Native Women in the Arts to present an amazing selection of Indigenous guest artists as part of BYOBeads! Each month, we invite a special Indigenous guest artist from a multi-disciplinary art form to share their work at one of our beading circles, and to have a discussion with our participants, making it a true celebration of Indigenous artistry & talent! Guest artists are drawn from Indigenous arts communities all over Canada, featuring music, playwrights, actors, storytellers, visual artists and more, celebrating the broad range of Indigenous artists from east Toronto and beyond.
So come meet online, bring a cup of your favourite tea, share your bead work, share your tips, enjoy a performance, and gather socially (from a distance!) with people who share your love of this traditional craft.
NOTE: Participants are not required to call in with video – We all know how zoomed out things can get these days, so please, feel free to join us however you feel comfortable (though we would LOVE to see your work!)”
