ACA 2023: Belonging - Considering archival bonds and disconnects
Pre-Conference Workshop: Quill Work on Birch Bark
Quill work is an ancient artwork that inspired the Mi’kmaq, or the porcupine people, to create such beautiful pieces of art that are now kept in museums all over the world for their beauty and timeless creativity. In this experience you will be able to work with a skilled artisan and create your own decorative birch bark circle to take home with you while learning about the rich and beautiful history of the Mi’kmaq on PEI.
This art form has been passed down from generation to generation and now it is your time to learn this amazing skill.
