In this program, Jackson takes on the roles of artist, demonstrator, and educator. As an artist, she chose the materials and created the design, inspired by the floral images found in the exhibition. As demonstrator, she illustrates the beading process for visitors, sharing the traditions and skills learned from previous generations. As educator, she teaches visitors introductory beading techniques while guiding and directing the formation of each piece.
