Building Community Through Haudenosaunee Raised Beadwork

Also known as Iroquois Raised Beadwork, Haudenosaunee Raised Beadwork is unique to the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, characterized by lines of beads that arch above the textile surface for a three-dimensional effect, typically sewn onto velvet.

n this two-day community-building class, you will make an approximate 6″ x 4″ intermediate-level “whimsy,” enjoy a Native 3 Sisters Soup, and most importantly, leave with a group of new found friends. Although an intermediate project, this class is open to all skill levels. Participants will gain appreciation for the meditative and patient process of beading, learn more about the Iroquois world view, and learn the way culture is represented through needle and thread, food, and art.
