Needle Felting Inspired by Cultural Design with Melanie Monique Rose
This workshop is brought to you by the LMLCC and Lumsden Beach Camp, in conjunction with LBC's Artist-in-Residence exhibition, in the Elsie Scherle Gallery from October 21 to November 14. Learn to create needle felted artworks inspired by cultural designs and patterns with artist Melanie Monique Rose. An ongoing study for Melanie is her work with the theme, The Flower People. It is derived from the name ‘The Flower Beadwork People’ a name given to the Metis who are well known for their floral beadwork. Felted pieces, combined with the use of collected blankets create a canvas for her personal exploration of identity as a contemporary Indigenous Artist, alongside her Ukrainian heritage. Join us in finding your own inspirations through the tactile, meditative process of felting. This is an in-person event. Participants will be required to wear masks at all times during the workshop. Spaces are limited. This workshop is open to ages 12 and up, or under 12 with an adult. Email the LMLCC at email@example.com to register. Registrations will be filled in the order they are received.
This event is free.

A short drive from Regina, located in the beautiful Qu’Appelle Valley, hugging the south shore of Last Mountain Lake, is a piece of paradise known as Lumsden Beach Camp. Lumsden Beach Camp did not happen by chance. It was created by faith filled people who had a vision. Since 1905 this camp has been a special place where adults and children come together. Still today we come to this special place making lasting friendships, connecting with the sacred and having tons of fun!
