Weaving with Invasive Species

  • Coquitlam Heriage 1116 Brunette Avenue Coquitlam, BC, V3K 1G2 Canada (map)

Put some of those invasive plants and garden clippings to good use -- turn them into baskets! We'll cover the basics of twining, one of the most fundamental techniques practiced by BC First Nations and settlers, and make small baskets to take home. We'll also discuss how to tell if a plant is useful for weaving, how and when to harvest, and how to process and store your weaving materials. You'll leave with a whole new appreciation for both the basketry skills of our ancestors, and the generosity of our local weeds. Ages 14+.

$20.00 per person.
