Join master weaver Jessica Silvey and learn the twill and twine weaves in this intermediate level cedar bark basket weaving. Attendees will use hand dyed red cedar for the pattern. All materials are included and prepared locally by the artist.
I am a self taught weaver of Coast Salish and Portuguese descent, of the Silvey family of Egmont, BC. Many of my childhood hours were spent with my paternal Grandmother in the forest. It is my favourite place to be, surrounded by cedar tree’s and silence. I have learned traditional techniques from research as well as trial and error. I harvest and prepare my own materials. When I am ready to weave, the most time consuming work has been completed. It is my passion as well as therapy for my soul. – Jessica Silvey
