Métis Vest 2 day Workshop

Traditional Métis  Melton Vest Making

Learn how to create a traditional Métis  melton vest with a variety of decorative options. Our knowledge keeper and traditional teacher will guide you through the process of cutting, sewing and decorating your vest with beadwork, hair tufting, applique, ribbon work, or embroidery. The simple style of the vest allows the artwork to take center stage and be the focal point of the garment. Whether you’re a beginner or have some experience in sewing, this workshop is for you!

The Métis  vest is a great way to display the skills and culture of the Métis  people.
