    Please join us as we present an exhibition showcasing beautiful moccasins created by the Emily Carr University community. This year-long initiative invited staff, faculty and Aboriginal students to participate in a Moccasin making workshop. Through demonstrations, videos and guest artists, participants were shown how to design and sew their own pair of moccasins. Beadwork was a new challenge for most, and one that was eagerly met by these first time beaders.

    The pre-cut Elk hide templates and other supplies were supplied and organized by the Aboriginal Gathering Place and held weekly drop in times. It was a wonderful opportunity for staff and faculty across disciplines and departments to interact and engage with each other and our Aboriginal students.
