Event Description

Ribbon skirt making, redux! A Three day workshop series! June 20th, 21st, and 22nd @ 5PM to 7PM!

We will be joined by fellow youth, Alexa Lizoette! 

A small bio:

"Alexa Lizotte is a mixed, urban, Métis artist with Métis ancestry in North Vermilion Settlement, Alberta and Euro-settler ancestry who shares her story of reclaiming her Métis practices and Métis stories of strength through her beadwork, sewing, and educational opportunities. Join her for a hand-sewing ribbon skirt workshop that focuses on community building, the practice of patience, and the historical journey of the ribbon skirt.

All supplies and snacks will be provided by YouthCO, and at the end you have a ribbon skirt to take home with you! 

Please email [email protected] if you have any specific fabric or color requests, otherwise we will have many options to choose from!
