Each day will include storyteling, music and dance and will introduce children to a variety of projects such as finger weaving, embroidery, and beading. At least one day will feature making bannock. Each day will be led by an instructor who is either a professional artist or traditional artisan. If the strike continues for more than two weeks the program will expand to include other First Nations and Inuit arts and crafts. All materials included.
Class size for this program is limited to 10.
Camp will run rom 9:00am – 3:00pm daily. Doors open at 8:45 only.
