Indigenous Beading Workshop for Beginners
Led By Brit Ellis aka Blu Hummingbird
March 2nd from 6:00 to 8:00
Organized by YTB Gallery at The Feminist Art Gallery

This workshop, led by artist Brit Ellis (Blu Hummingbird) will teach people how to create a small beaded object using traditional and modern techniques in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. This workshop is geared to beginners, but all levels are welcome to participate. Due to limited space, priority will be given to those identifying as First Nations, Inuit or Mètis' people. This workshop is free and all materials will be provided along with snacks and great opportunity to create your own work of art. Registration is required and can be done online by filling out the form via Eventbright

Brit Ellis, aka Blu Hummingbird, is a Haudenosaunee woman, community worker and beadwork artist. Her style fuses traditional and modern techniques and imagery to create distinguishable, one of a kind work. Brit feels that continuing the oral tradition of passing down beadwork skills and teachings is an act of resilience and reclamation and has been doing so in community for over three years. She currently lives in Tkaronto, Ontario (traditional territory of the Mississauga’s of New Credit, Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee Nations) with her husband, Adam, and her dog, Morty

YTB Gallery has partnered with the Feminist Art Gallery who has generously provided space for our next series of exhibitions and workshops at their space in Parkdale. If you have any questions feel free to contact
