Come join us as we continue our journey to creating a 12′ tall jingle dress dancer. This workshop, running August 13-17 and August 20-24, will be led by Christopher Lutter as he begins the design and construction of the dancer using the elements collected throughout the summer and under the guidance of Anishinabe jingle dress dancer makers. Many hands are need to help make the jingles, bead the mocs, belt, and leggings, craft her face and hands and sew her dress. All are welcome!
