An ongoing raised beadwork class at the Akwesasne Cultural Center finished up on Wednesday, March 28th. The raised beadwork class was taught by Marlana Thompson along with her assistant Ashley Thompson. The participants were taught how to do raised beadwork by creating a Shadow Box Frame. A lot of beautiful beadwork was created during the class. Most of the participants were beginners, but you wouldn't know that by looking at the beadwork they created during the class. Some participants were able to move on to a second beading project.

Marlana Thompson stated, "This is the first class I have taught at the Akwesasne Cultural Center. I do work out of my home, and I am willing to do classes and individual lessons from my home."

Marlana Thompson is a very talented artist who creates traditional outfits and beadwork. She is also an amazing teacher; her students' beadwork showcases her ability to teach. There will be future classes coming up at the Akwesasne Cultural Center, with registration only taking place when the classes are publicly advertised.
