The Nigivik Centre held their first Mitt making workshop in Nain this week.
Shelly Dicker is the Community Food Coordinator for the Centre.
She says the workshop started on Monday, December 10th.
Dicker says they had over 20 individuals who were interested in the mitt making workshop but with only limited seats and limited seal skins they had 7 participants enrolled.
Right now they are looking for youth to participate in the Seal Skin Cleaning workshop for in the New Year, this is for youth from ages 16 years to 35 years.
Dicker says they have 5 to 6 space available for youth to learn how to skin a seal.
