Hosted at Second Vine Wine in the Marigny, Sip & Sew offers a taste of one of New Orleans' most beloved cultural components: Mardi Gras Indians.
With a combination of history, performance, crafts and of course wine, Sip & Sew is the perfect 21+ group outing in New Orleans.
This interactive cultural experience includes one needle, one 3x3 canvas, an assortment of beads and stencil designs, a custom case for your finished product and snacks. A variety of wines, as well as a full bar, will be available for purchase at the venue. Special requests for wine can be placed ahead of time as well.
In addition to creating personalized keepsakes, participants are taught a brief history of Mardi Gras Indian culture as well as chants. Midway through the session, guests are invited to watch a live Mardi Gras Indian performance by members of the Young Maasai Hunters tribe. Mardi Gras Indian costumes will be on display for the viewing pleasure of guests.
