Beadworking Demonstration with Martha Newell, Passamaquoddy

9/3/2014, 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Join Beadworker Martha Newell, Passamaquoddy from Indian Township, as she demonstrates traditional beading techniques in a modern context to create fun, simple, and beautiful beaded creations that connect the traditional and the contemporary.  The influence of European colonizers affected the traditional crafts of the Wabanaki in many ways, especially by introducing new materials into Wabanaki arts.  Beadwork is a perfect example of the Wabanaki’s everlasting ability to adapt to their surroundings as ancient skills mix with new materials to create a brand new tradition.
