Borealis Beading and Pinawa Art 211 Experiences

Last year in 2021, Eastman Tourism and four local businesses got to work on developing four Eastern Manitoba experiences. Of those four was Borealis Beading and Pinawa Art 211 (Pinawa Art Gallery), who are launching their experiences this month!

Pinawa Art 211 has just released their experience titled Forest to River: Where Art, History and Inspiration Flow. This experience lets you travel through time and nature while unleashing your inner artist. Be inspired as you walk along the Iron Wood with your guide, a local artist, who will share the stories of two historically important women artists; one from a colonial perspective and the other indigenous. After, gather together at Pinawa Art Gallery to create your own masterpiece where there is no bad stroke or dab of the brush, only your own creativity. You can read more about this exciting experience in our blog here.

Borealis Beading’s experience will release on June 28 and is titled Perlage: A Métis Voyage into the World of the Flower Beadwork People. This experience is a journey of understanding how the Métis became known as the Flower Beadwork People while learning firsthand the art of beadwork. Gather together and walk the property while Melanie, the owner/artisan of Borealis Beading, shares the stories and techniques of the Flower Beadwork People and expresses her own journey of connecting with her heritage through art.
