Metis Fire Bags (Octopus Bags) Workshop - Live & Social Distanced
The ‘Octopus Bag’ has a fascinating history! Considering the land-locked position of the Metis Homeland, you might wonder how this piece of regalia got such a unique name.
We'll share the story and history of the octopus bag (also known as a ‘fire-bag’) and discuss how to use and wear these lovely cultural pieces, while constructing octopus bags of our own. A variety of colored felted cloth, decorating materials and the necessary tools will be provided for the creation of your own individualized bag.
This is a social distanced workshop, please bring a mask. Maximum 6 guests, or 3 cohorts.
Discounted to $125.00/person, with additional cohort discounts, until April 20th.
