9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Join artist Honey Constant-Inglis to learn some teachings behind ribbon skirts, connections to the land, and how to make your own personalized skirt.
Ribbon Skirts are a symbol of resilience, survival and identity, but their meaning changes with each person who wears one and each person who shares their history.
We will provide all sewing machines and thread, as well as some fabric and ribbons we have on site to use. Feel free to bring your own materials as well, and you can message ahead for more information on what is recommended!
Free parking and admission to the site, trails, and exhibits are included in the cost. Our restaurant will be open, or you can feel free to bring your own lunch. Coffee, tea, and water will be provided as refreshments.
*Thank you to Saskatoon Community Foundation for their support of this workshop and supplementing costs though the Community Fund for Reconciliation Grant.
tânisi nitôtêmak! I’m Honey Constant-Inglis (They/She) I am an Artist, Archaeologist, and Heritage Educator from Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation. I own Honey Willow nêhiyaw Studio (@HoneyWillowCreations)
Honey Willow nêhiyaw Studio is an inclusive and welcoming space for everyone on their reconciliation journey. Our community is the heart of our work that honours Indigenous heritage through workshops, beadwork, and community initiatives. We create space for dispelling myths, turning theory into practice, and connecting meaningfully with one another.
I’ve been beading since I was a teen but it was not until four years ago that I started beading almost every day. Since then I’ve been fortunate to create artwork full time and be my own boss! My favourite part of beading is creating something that people feel beautiful, powerful, or amazing in. I create my fire colour beadwork with the intention that you feel strong, valued, and acts as a visual reminder that you are loved.
