Nicole Preissl (Stolo) and Veronica Rose (Gitxsan) will be leading a series of interactive and informative walks for participants aged 13-24 who are interested in weaving with natural fibres. The walks will take place between MOP and Trillium North Park, where EartHand Gleaners has their locations. The walks are meant to engage youth in weaving activities, discussion of place making and learning skills that incorporate indigenous plants into art making. The walks will all be held on the evenings and weekends in July. Harvesting will coincide with planting of indigenous seeds, and casual weaving will take place during discussion from the walk leaders and from local guest speakers. The walks are meant to be a way for youth to engage with more holistic ways of weaving and making, and to begin to consider our relationships with this land as home and provider.
All walks 7-9pm; meet at Means of Production Garden (6th & St.Catherines, Vancouver) unless otherwise noted
