convent, it stands with great pride as Winnipeg’s oldest building. Were it for that fact only, the building itself would undoubtedly draw and garner interest. However within its walls, there continues to be a very vibrant level of activity. Te doors are open year-round and the museum strives to provide a place for learning, a place where people can connect with Manitoba history and with one another and, most recently, a place where artisan work is increasingly valued and created. One of the museum’s best kept secrets is its beautiful

Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum L

The perfect place to support local artisans or become one yourself!

e Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum is nestled behind beautiful large oak trees at 494 Taché Avenue and, be- ing housed within the walls of the original Grey Nuns’

boutique which offers unique products from local artists, artisans, crafters, publishing companies, authors and local specialty foods producers. Te entire museum will also be transformed into an artisan market for the very popular annual community Christmas event “C’est Noël à Saint- Boniface” on December 5th and 6th. Why not consider stopping in with your extended family for kids’ activities and crafts, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus and – of course – some shopping! Te presence of art, crafts and abundance of culture is a

staple of the museum’s special programming. In the past, the museum has been a gathering place for those interested in reviving some aspects of arts and artisan work such as traditional finger weaving and capote making. New since the fall of 2015, Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum began offering 10-session workshops that teach the technique of traditional métis beadwork as well as provide glimpses into other indigenous styles or beading practices. Participants are mentored by community artist Ms. Julie Desrochers and receive added insight, knowledge and instruction from guest artists such as Jennine Krauchi, Jocelyne Pambrun and Evonne Bernier. If you have ever wanted to learn Métis beadwork, to be ac-

companied and guided in the creation of your own beautiful beaded leather bag or pair of moccasins, this is the perfect opportunity for you! Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum is now taking registrations for the upcoming winter session of “Beadwork at Le Musée” – a relaxed, friendly and rewarding learning opportunity. Te program will run from January 14th to March 24th, 2016 (no session on February 18th due to Festival du Voyageur). Set-up starts at 6pm for those who
