This two-part workshop meets March 27 and April 3, 10:00-11:30 AM

Facilitated by Muscogee Creek artist Kimberly Robertson, participants in this workshop will learn traditional American Indian beadwork techniques to embellish a Theodore Payne Foundation California poppy patch. Robertson will lead the group in a discussion of the relationship between Native plants and land acknowledgement as well as the potential for traditional arts to remember, honor, and heal Indigenous communities.

All materials are included in the ticket price. They can be picked up from TPF during our normal business hours, or they can be shipped domestically for a fee payable with your class registration. Materials will only be available for in-store pickup after March 19.

This class will be held online via Zoom. A Zoom account is not required to attend. Login instructions will be included in the registration confirmation, and students will receive reminder emails starting two days before the class.
