Join Woodland Pattern as we explore the art of Iroquois Raised Beading with James Kelly. The Iroquois developed this technique during the Victorian Era to sell beaded art to help support their families. Learn simply Iroquois raised beading techniques and learn the history and culture of the Haudenosaunee (people of the longhouse). 

This is a 2-session workshop. If you have previously paid for the 4/22 workshop, you do not need to register or pay for this session as it is already included.
