About Cross-Cultural Beading Circle

Do you miss gathering in person to bead? If so, come to MAWA on Monday evenings (pending public health rules). Do you prefer to gather virtually? Join the circle via Zoom. Everyone is invited to share their skills, learn and/or work independently in a welcoming atmosphere. No experience necessary. Novice and experienced beaders of all cultures, ages and genders are welcome.

Some sessions are unstructured and provide an opportunity to work on our own projects, together. Other sessions feature a guest beader, who will share their history with beading and their techniques. When there is a guest, a kit of free materials (incl. beads, thread, cloth and leather) will be available for you at MAWA. If you are joining in via Zoom, you can pick it up in advance. Note that numbers for these sessions will be limited. To register, email Niamh at or call 204-396-0505.
