Orange Shirt Day Pin Beading Workshop (in-person, two sessions)

Orange Shirt Day Pin Beading Workshop (in-person, two sessions)

Presenter(s):
Michelle McDonald

Orange Shirt Day, which is now also the National Day for Truth & Reconciliation, is coming up on September 30. In preparation for that important date, Michelle McDonald, a beader originally from Sipekne'katik who is an Instructional Support Technician with the Dalhousie Libraries, is offering an in-person beading workshop where participants will learn how to bead their own Orange Shirt Day pin. 

 What to know in advance:

  1. All materials will be supplied. There is no cost to attend. 
  2. Only sign up if you can attend BOTH sessions of the workshop in person in the Ko’jua Okuom in the Killam Memorial Library (Sept. 14 AND 21 from 10:30 a.m.–12 p.m.). 
  3. Beginners are welcome. It is helpful if you have sewing or embroidery experience, but it is not required.
  4. Due to the small size of the beads, you may find it helpful to bring an additional pair of magnifying glasses, etc.
