On April 27, the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Grand River Métis Council held a loom beading workshop in Guelph. Council Secretary/Treasurer Barbra Lair taught over 20 participants how to bead on a loom. Citizens and friends from the MNO Credit River and MNO Hamilton-Wentworth Councils also participated.

Some beaders were quite quick to pick up the skill, while others enjoyed visiting with friends and doing a bit of beading.

The MNO Grand River Métis Council will be holding a follow-up workshop in May in order to continue the beading workshop. Many thanks to Barbra Lair for hosting a wonderful workshop.
