The workshops will feature:
Sudanese Beadwork with Ajoullo Okello
Okello’s beadwork technique is flat-woven, and can be used to create bracelets, table runners and wall hangings. Traditionally, dried calabaza squashes are covered with beadwork to make sculptural decorations. Okello learned her tribal techniques and patterns from her mother in South Sudan. She and her children came as refugees in 2006. Okello wishes to return to her country to teach English to children.

Richelieu Embroidery with Agniezska Marcinow
Richelieu embroidery technique, known as cutwork, originated in France, but spread throughout Europe during the Renaissance. Marcinow learned Richelieu in her native Poland. She has been in Canada for almost three years and works as an Office Assistant at the University of Manitoba.

Lace Crochet with Elina Mazin
Mazin grew up close to the capital city of Kazakhstan, Almata, and often finds inspiration for her patterns through old books from Kazakhstan. Before coming to Canada she spent eight years working in Israel. She is raising her son and is studying to become a bookkeeper.

African Hairstyles with Henriette Mukesa
Mukesa will introduce the traditions of African braids and hair extensions. She is from the Democratic Republic of Congo, and she lived 12 years in Cameroon as a refugee before coming to Canada. 
She worked as a nurse, coordinated a school for refugee children and taught sewing. She is involved with several community organizations and has previously taught a workshop about African hairstyle techniques for non-African women.
