Unleash your creativity with the masterful Laurie McDougall of Velvetleaf Beadworks at Dalnavert Museum. Born and raised in the heart of the Métis homeland, Laurie's beadwork is a testament to her deep connection to her roots and her journey of cultural reconnection. Whether you're a seasoned artist or a curious beginner, this workshop promises to be a meditative and enriching experience that draws its inspiration from nature, textiles, and the vibrant hues of life. Each participant will be guided to create a pair of unique earrings marking the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30. Laurie's passion and expertise, combined with the historic ambiance of Dalnavert Museum, make this a not-to-be-missed event!

All materials will be provided. Spaces limited. We recommend registering in advance to guarantee your spot.

This event is free, but we hope you will consider making a pay-what-you-may donation to the Indian Residential School Survivors' Society in lieu of workshop fees.


Dalnavert Museum and Visitors' Centre

Built in 1895, Dalnavert Museum is an ornate Victorian mansion nestled in the heart of Winnipeg. This unique museum features a “day in the life” feel as it transports you back in time to the 19th century the second you step inside. Dalnavert Museum and Visitors' Centre (DMVC) is a national historic site and one of the finest examples of Queen Anne Revival architecture in Western Canada. Today the museum fosters engagement with history, culture, and much more.
