Another academic year has come to an end, 2013-14 we’ll miss you, but we have big things in store for 2014-15!
Good luck on exams to all students and we look forward to seeing the newest Queen’s students as early as Early Move In Day in September!
Side note: we will continue to update our site regularly throughout the summer as items come forward.
Last photo – we swear! They’re just so beautiful and hold so much meaning that we can’t help but post them everywhere! Thanks to Rebecca Maracle, her daughter Emily and everyone who showed up for the workshop!
We all chose unique feathers and began ‘decorating’ our shields.
We began painting our shields, each in our own way with the four directions/winds/colors. Each one was unique and based off the artists designs.
After wrapping our circles we began to weave the leather into the center using sinew. Super tricky, with a beautiful result!
Our Medicine Shield workshop was phenomenal! Our excitement definitely paid off in the end!
