Diving deeper into the diversity of plants at Means of Production Garden and Trillium North Park, the EartHand Weavers Guild will act as garden stewards while exploring materials and basketry techniques in an atmosphere of sharing, creative risk-taking, research and direct inquiry into meaningful, seasonal ‘making’ in our place and lives. Our starting point will be the seasonal unfolding of hazel, willow, fruit tree suckers, invasive vines and blackberry canes, and exploring how these can be transformed by splitting, twining, coiling, plaiting, and other techniques.
