Bannock and Bead workshop in Hobbema

Bannock and Bead workshop, February 29, 4-6 pm,

I want to thank my coworkers for teaching us how to make fried and baked bannock.  We had an excellent beading instructor. Our beading teacher taught us to make butterfly broach, star earrings, flower rings and three different types of beaded necklaces and bracelets. We enjoyed making and taking home bannock and beaded creations.

My family and all the participants had a great time. It was nice to meet so many people and make new friends and get invited to attend community events. All the participants enjoyed taking home a box of books.  They all looked at the display of books about indigenous people and legends. The authors and illustrators profiled were George Littlechild, David Bouchard. Parents are looking forward for the upcoming, 'Communication Session' in March.

Thank you for the tea, biscuits, rice pudding, bannock, and beaded creations.  Thank you all the people involved in hosting the Bannock and Bead workshop.
