Beading- Sewing Circle July-Aug session
Join us next Wednesday at the Ho-Chunk Chicago Branch Office for the last day of Beading & Sewing Circle…..but don’t be surprised if we extend it again…… 🙂
We had such a fun time learning about OUR indigenous sport, Lacrosse. RJ did a great job teaching us the history of the game and clearly explaining to us how this is the Creator’s game. We even played a game of 4 on 4 and were wore out! Our bodies are still sore but we are happy to now have learned how to facilitate this game in the community. Thanks again to RJ for his expertise!
As announced last week, due to popular demand, we have extended Beading & Sewing Circle for another 4 week session. This is the 2nd extension to this program and we are thrilled to do so because of the large community turnout and engagement. We have really been having a great time coming together learning, teaching each other, laughing and eating.
This week, we wanted to share some of the work that has been done over the past few weeks:
Community member, Patricia X., is showing off her large beaded medallion piece she completed last night. We were excited to see the final product!
First time beader, Chantay M., completed these earrings for her daughter
First time beader and sewer, Bonita L., working on a beaded hair barrette and regalia pieces for her son.
Earrings on the left made by experienced beader 7th grader, Asya H. and earrings on the right made by experienced beader Lisa B.
Forrest B. made the tobacco pouch, beaded the edging and started beading another project
Join us for the next 2 scheduled sessions, 4th session date still to be determined
