Mixed-Indigenous two-spirit artist and designer, Heather Morigeau offers teachings related to coiled basketry in Indigenous communities throughout the world, and lessons about spirals and geometry. This contemporary expression of traditional Indigenous arts focuses on encapsulating Indigenous teachings and medicines.
This workshop will culminate in the creation of a small, wooden-base pine needle Medicine Basket for storing sage or other Sacred Medicines.
Inspired by Louis Riel of the Métis Nation, who once said “My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their spirit back,” Morigeau believes that arts are medicine.
Her practice embodies her own healing journey from addiction, mental illness and colonialism.
Artists of all experience levels and disciplines are welcome. Food provided at the workshop.
