About the instructor:

Stephanie Peltier is a Francophone First Nations (Ojibway/Odawa/Potawatomi) Artist from Wikwemikong. Stephanie has created beadwork since 2014 and her jewelry has been worn by several well-known individuals across the world and has facilitated workshops with the help of her unique Beginner Beading Kit.

A note from the artist:

I believe my passion comes from my “late” grandmother (Delia) who is known for quilting and making beautiful pieces out of sweet grass. Delia was a sewing goddess followed by my other grandmother (Estelle) who's owned a seamstress shop for over 40 years. I believe I have received a beautiful gift from both. I have been a vendor at various craft shows and I enjoy the reactions of the community when seeing my beadwork. It’s an opportunity for them to feel and see the detail of each piece.
