Beading Workshop with Heron Hill Designs

Free and open to the public. No registration required. 

Keep the good vibes going from Feel Good Friday with part two of a beading workshop with Heron Hill Designs! Drop by at any time to learn about cowrie shells, experiment with designs, and be in community with local indigenous beaders. 

Heron Hill Designs, HHD for short, is a collective started by Joey Kennedy and Daniel Beck, who are currently based in Michigan. All items produced are one-of-a-kind handmade and hand-harvested when possible or otherwise stated. Any materials that cannot be made are outsourced within indigenous communities when possible. HHD focuses on creating with sustainability, respect, and conscientious consumption in mind. Their work is a blend of contemporary styles of art and older traditional woodland floral designs. 

The Arts & Resistance Theme Semester, organized by UMMA and the U-M Arts Initiative, is generously supported by the U-M Office of the Provost, the U-M College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch, and Erica Gervais Pappendick and Ted Pappendick.

Hear Me Now is organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with support from the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Henry Luce Foundation.

Lead support for UMMA's presentation of the exhibition is provided by Michigan Engineering, the U-M Office of the Provost, the U-M Office of the President, the Americana Foundation, the U-M College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, the U-M Inclusive History Project, and Michigan Humanities. Additional generous support is provided by Larry and Brenda Thompson and Melissa Kaish and Jonathan Dorfman.
