Naomi Smith is an Indigenous artist, curator and educator. In this virtual workshop she will lead us through the history and making of a traditional hairpipe bracelet. Materials are provided. Ages 8+.

The history of the Indigenous hairpipe is shrouded in mystery. This ages old object of adornment is an esteemed part of Indigenous material culture. In this session Indigenous artist, curator and educator, Naomi Smith will discuss the ways the hairpipe is used, as well as the materials and ideas around how the hairpipe got it’s name. Who would of thought there could be so much Indigenous history incorporated in the hairpipe?
