Native beading artist and talented instructor, Greg Bohanan, will be back at the Museum of the Red River to present the loom beading workshop in the Mary H. Herron Community Conference Center on September 14, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. This workshop will teach you everything from warping and setting up your loom to weaving and finishing a beaded bracelet.

Loom beadwork was not a widely practiced early Native American work, although there is evidence of loom beaded pieces among the eastern, Great Lakes, and Midwest tribes. As modern powwow dancing developed, however, many more tribes began to use this technique. Today, loom beadwork is a common technique used to create flat pieces of work.

The cost of the workshop is $45. All materials, including the loom are provided for you to keep. Please call the museum @ 580-286-3616 to reserve your spot.
