Make Your Own Moccasins! All Levels
Register In this moccasin-making workshop, students will be joined by Pass The Feather representative Dawn Setford (Mohawk) and instructor Beverly Anger (Onondaga/Métis).
 
A traditional opening will begin our workshop and we are honoured to have Ms. Elaine Kicksoway and her son Theland perform a song and offering. You may remember young Theland from his famous appearance of leading in PM Trudeau’s new cabinet in November. Elaine is a knowledge keeper and has taught many of us in the community.

The word ‘moccasin’ refers to the protective hide footwear worn by First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nations. They were specifically designed for individual environmental protection, i.e. Plains groups had hard sole moccasins for rocky terrain.

Woodland Native communities (Haudenosaunee/Iroquois) often adorned their moccasins with floral or animal beadwork designs, small bone carvings or quill décor.

In this moccasin-making workshop, students will be joined by Pass The Feather representative Dawn Setford (Mohawk) and instructor Beverly Anger (Onondaga/Métis).

Our workshop includes all of the materials you will need to complete and personalize your own pair of mocs! Students will be guided through the entire process of moccasin-making, starting with picking a pattern of your size, cutting your leather, sewing with sinew and personalizing your mocs just how you like!

Should you have your own leather or adornments set aside for just an occasion, you can certainly bring them along.

We hope you’ll join us. Register early! We only have 12 seats available for this workshop.

This is a fundraising event for 'Pass the Feather', whcih is being hosted by the OSA. All money (aside from HST) will go to the 'Pass the Feather' to support their activities in isolated communities. You can find more about Pass the Feather on their website: www.passthefeather.org
