Join master weaver Jessica Silvey and learn the fundamentals of weaving red cedar bark and cat tail to create a unique basket for your home. All materials will be provided.
I am a self taught weaver of Coast Salish and Portugese 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
