Crafters courses offered. (Education).

Ever wonder what it would be like to bead, do quill work, or make fish scale art or moccasins? As part of the Native Clothing Design Program, the Northern Lakes College in Grouard will hold a full week of four courses that will show you how. Courses are set to run from July 28 to Aug. 2.

"We are expecting people from other provinces to apply to this summer program. It will be all hands on. We are going to start right from scratch," said Margaret Cardinal, program coordinator. "You are actually going to take the porcupine and pluck its quills and you are going to take the fish and wash the scales. When you are going to do the moccasins, you are actually going to draft the moccasins, cutting the design out and we are going to show you step by step how to put it together," she said.

At the end of the program students will have to complete a small medicine pouch, a set of earrings, a matching pin, a dreamcatcher, a frame-ready art piece and a pair of moccasins.
