Find out how artist Nico Williams got into beading and hear about his stunning beaded sculptures. Then learn some beginning techniques for peyote beading by following a simple bullseye pattern to make a sparkling, beaded triangle. This program is organized in collaboration with the American Indian Community House.
Nico Williams has a multidisciplinary, often collaborative practice centered around sculptural beadwork. His sculptures are sometimes highly patterned, abstract geometric forms, sometimes sparkling representations of familiar objects, and always hand-woven from hundreds of glass beads. Williams is a member of Aamjiwnaang First Nation (Anishinaabe) and lives and works in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal, Canada.
