Fall is here and the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) has partnered with well-known Indigenous floral designer Shawna Shandiin Sunrise for a seasonal workshop, Nizhónígo Anílééh (Make it Beautiful): Autumn Harvest Arrangement Workshop through an Indigenous Creative Process. Gifted with an eye for color and balance, Sunrise, a 5th generation Diné (Navajo) weaver, will connect harmony and placement in creating autumn harvest arrangements. Learn how to incorporate fall leaves, small pumpkins, and gourds with autumn flowers for a seasonal centerpiece. Participants will be shown floral designs utilizing local indigenous plants and fresh cut flowers.
