wâpikwaniy: A Beginner’s Guide to Métis Floral Beadwork

This well organized, well thought-out crafts book provides clear instructions for creating traditional beadwork projects. Clearly spelled-out steps give tips on locating supplies, preparation of materials and threading the needles. The book’s spiral binding allows it to lie flat for easy use. Straightforward and easy to follow instructions and large full-colour photographs throughout help the student accomplish the projects described. The page containing additional templates may be photocopied for a variety of additional projects. The award-winning Métis poet Gregory Scofield has written a personal and inspiring introduction. An historical overview is also included and offers much useful and interesting information. The book includes an instructional DVD.
