February 4, Strathcona Community Garden Eco-Pavilion
759 Malkin Avenue Vancouver
Brothers Butch and Alley Sakiyama remember, as young boys, making fish nets with linen in the basement of the family home for their community in Steveston. Still very active in the fishing community and busy using their net mending skills, Butch and Alley join EartHand to share their knowledge and assist us with getting our nets started.
Like other Weaving~Conversation circles, we will begin with time to learn new skills – working with netting needles using our home grown and spun linen line; and later, story telling and conversation while we work together, deepening our understanding of the cultural traditions of fishing this coast and our reliance on and connection to both the Land & Sea.
