Loop Earring Workshop with Tohanash Tarrant
November 18 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Long, loop earrings with metal cones are a common style found throughout Indigenous Communities of Turtle Island. Each pair of earrings carries with it the spirit of its maker.
About the workshop teacher: From a young age Tohanash shadowed her mother while she sat quietly for hours beading hair ties, lacing shawls and quilting blankets. From the time she could walk, she was dancing at powwows. Now with two children of her own, her attentions have turned from dancing fancy shawl herself, to beading and sewing dance outfits for her children and other relatives. Beadwork has long been a passion of hers and it shows with the care to detail and individuality of each new piece. Creating a sustainable business model based on her passions and abilities, has set Tohanash apart and given her inspiration to continue to share her art.
