About this Event

What: Indigenous Rattle-Making Workshop

When: 2 Workshop offerings: Each Workshop requires 2 dates, spaced 1 week apart. The first meeting is for rattle assembly, with a week waiting period to allow the rattles to fully dry, and the second meeting to complete / finish off the rattles and paint them if you wish.

1. January 29th & February 5th 10am-12pm

2. February 23 & March 2nd 10am-12pm

Who: Indigenous UBC Students, faculty & staff, as well as Musqueam Community members.

Cost: $0. Costs are covered by workshop sponsors, but spaces are limited.

Facilitator: Shevonne Hall is a Mohawk/Ojibway artist who lives and works in the Musqueam Community.

“I believe art is medicine that can help with the healing of Indigenous Peoples trauma. Over the past three decades, I have learnt a variety of traditional art forms that I now teach. In doing so, I am part of the seventh generation that reawakens the spirit of our Ancestors.” – (Artist Statement)

Shevonne reinvests proceeds from her art towards purchasing art supplies for Indigenous youth programs in remote / rural Indigenous communities across Canada where access to art stores or supplies is limited and where the cost of shipping for online purchases is prohibitive.

Sponsors: Karleen Delaurier-Lyle & Tamis Cochrane, Xwi7xwa Library, and Health, Wellbeing and Benefits from Human Resources at UBC.

NOTE ON THE RATTLE MEDIUM: The rattles are made with genuine animal hides. This may not be suitable for anyone who is unable to work with hides for personal concerns.
