Multi-talented Ojibwa Artist Hiawatha at CTS

HiawathaOur last 2 workshops with Hiawatha Osawamick were hugely successful.  In the Traditional Leather Hide workshop participants learned how to make custom fit moccasins or mittens from leather hide and then embellish them with fur trims, beads, and more.
