About the Event
Explore what Honourable Harvest means to Karin, as a non-Indigenous weaver, and in sustainably harvesting basket materials. Practicing these teachings will help us to develop a healthy relationship with the plants, the land and the other beings around us. Karin and Teya will teach how to make a trivet, which is in fact the same as the bottom of a basket. From this project you will learn a couple of ways to start a basket, weaving techniques such as twining, adding spokes, and finishing the rim. If time and weather permit, we will go out to harvest some materials for future use.
This class is suitable for beginners as well as people who have done some weaving and the project can be adjusted to best suit skill and ability levels. All workshop materials are soft plants, locally harvested and are included in the fee. Cost is $50. To register for this amazing opportunity, go to www.ptarmiganarts.org/programs .
