The Place Where the Trails Meet: Beading and Storywork with Jaymie Campbell @MRU Makerspace

Inspired by the work of Jeffrey Gibson in the exhibition Time Carriers on view at Esker Foundation, 28 September- 20 December 2019.

In this workshop Campbell will lead participants in a creative exploration of their connections to culture, identity, land, community place and customs. Using beadwork and storywork design principles, participants will produce two identical small-scale personal designs: one to take home, and one to contribute to a larger sculptural community project.

Participants will be invited to contribute creations generated in this workshop to the exhibition of The Place Where the Trails Meet, presented at the Otahpiaaki Showcase Saturday November 9th.

Jaymie Campbell is an accomplished Anishinaabe/Curve Lake First Nation beader and fashion designer. In 2015 Jaymie launched White Otter Design Co., which incorporates her love of traditional artistry with contemporary fashion.
