On July 9, 1-3 p.m. learn how to bead the Métis way. This specific type of beading originates from the mixture of two cultures: the flower embroideries of French-Canadian nuns and First Nations beading. The goal with the Métis Beading Workshop is to educate people about a unique culture that has been around for hundreds of years.

Staff at the Police Point Park Nature Centre encourage the people of Medicine Hat region to become more involved with Indigenous activities and programs.

Call to pre-register. To register for this program please call the Nature Centre at (403)-529-6225. It is $10 for participants who need something to bead on (hat or tote bag provided). If you wish to bring something from home to bead on please pay by donation.

This program will be taught by a Métis park interpreter. Additional information about this and other upcoming events is available through our website (http://www.natureline.info), Instagram (@policepointpark) or Facebook (policepointpark).
