Shelby Lisk and Liv Rondeau lead a free workshop
In the spirit of Shelby Lisk’s exhibition Shé:kon se’onhwentsyà:ke ratinékere tsi nihá:ti nè:ne yesanorónhkhwa (there are still people in the world that love you), Kanyen’kehá:ka artists Shelby Lisk and Liv Rondeau invite members of the community to join them for a workshop.
During the workshop participants can tour the exhibition, hear from the artist and create a pair of beaded earrings to gift to a loved one. Learn a basic brick stitch and how to create fringe using beads. This workshop is a continuation of the sentiment of Lisk’s exhibition and the Studios in Solitude residency: creating opportunities for moments of reconnection after our communities have been isolated from one another for so long.

Liv Rondeau is a Kanyen’kehá:ka educator and beadwork artist. She is the owner of Flint and Maple beadwork and is thankful to her grandmother and aunties for teaching her how to bead.

Liv is dedicated to helping her community and creating spaces where people can connect and reconnect to language and culture. She continues to do work every day that honours her culture, language, community, and her ancestors.
