For several years, I have been offering Smudge Fan Making Workshops in Vancouver, Canada. I’ve had many indigenous First Nations people attend my workshop, and it’s always very much enjoyable to see participants’ joy and awe upon admiring their completed smudge fans.

In all my workshops, I offer a safe, nurturing, and non-judgemental space so that creativity can be channeled through each and every one. Register for workshops here.

All materials are provided:

  • cruelty-free, naturally molted parrot feathers from bird rescue sanctuaries
  • other feathers not found in local art/craft shops
  • natural branches for handles
  • leather
  • embellishments
  • glue

Students are welcome to bring gemstones, their own feathers, and other materials to the class.
