Mid Island is excited to bring Ray McKeown to the Nanaimo Beading Circle for a Porcupine Quillwork presentation and workshop.

A piece of cultural history – before glass beads were brought by Europeans, moccasins were embellished with porcupine and bird quills, Native copper, elk teeth, moose hair and animal bones. The Metis being a mix of First Nation and European descent used combinations of all of the available materials.
