Ancient Skills: Weaving & Rope-Making (ages 7-14)

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

In this workshop, you’ll learn to make rope and weave small mats out of plants from our surroundings, just like our ancient ancestors did. You’ll get to know more about common plants for weaving, how to prepare them and store them, and how to gather them carefully and respectfully; you’ll also compare the plants that we are working with to the plants that our Host Nations depended on, and plants that were and are important in other areas. Ages 7-14. Registration required.

$10.00 per child
