Artist teaches traditional design, spiritualism.

Yvonne Jobin, traditional artist, designer and spiritualist of Cree First Nations offers a variety of classes in traditional beadwork, moccasin-making, medicine wheel teachings, ceremonial drums and porcupine quillwork at her gallery in Inglewood. She teaches traditional beadwork techniques of applique, floral or geometric, lazy stitch, loom or peyote. Based on the ancient teachings of First Nations people, her medicine wheel teachings include learning to balance mental, spiritual, physical and emotional being, and connecting to your spirit guides/power animal. Oral teachings passed down through the generations form the basis for empowerment, balance and grounding. Ceremonial drum classes help participants tune into their inner voices and the vibration of Mother Earth. Jobin provides an opportunity to learn the almost obsolete ancient art of porcupine quillwork.
