Join us in the NAC’s Atelier Shenkman Smith for Bougie Birch's Dreamcatcher Workshop. Under the guidance of Indigenous artist and educator, Ashley Clark, craft your own dreamcatcher in a 2-3 hour session. We supply the materials; you bring the inspiration.
Dive into Indigenous artistry, learn about the resilience of Indigenous communities throughout history, and be part of a hands-on experience that bridges cultures. With Bougie Birch, it's more than a craft – it's a journey into heritage. Come, connect, and create.
This workshop takes place at 1 Elgin St, in the National Arts Centre’s Atelier Shenkman Smith which is located across from the Box Office.
