Date posted: July 14, 2022

Our friends at SNIWWOC (Support Network for Indigenous Women & Women of Colour) are holding a Ribbon Skirt Making Workshop for Indigenous Youth (ages 13 – 19) from August 19 – 21.

Are you an Indigenous youth, age 13-19, in the Victoria area?

Have you ever wanted to learn how to make a traditional ribbon skirt with the expertise of an Indigenous Elder?

Join us at Belfry Theatre this August for a 3-day workshop where you will learn to create your own ribbon skirt. Don’t miss this amazing experience to connect with Indigenous traditions!

This Workshop will take place on:

August 19th from 3:00pm-6:00pm PDT

August 20th from 12:00pm-4:00pm PDT

August 21st from 12:00pm-4:00pm PDT

Day 1: An introduction followed by teachings shared by Elder Klasom Satlxw Losah, visually planning skirts based off fabric/ribbon swatches.

Day 2: Begin the assembling and sewing of the skirts, learning each of the following steps: tracing patterns, cutting fabric, laying ribbon, sewing and using a sewing machine.

Day 3: Continuing the same process as day 2, completing any skirts that were not finished on day 2.
