Take a breath of fresh air, reconnect with the land and find good company in this playful eco-art program. Engaging in seasonal tasks and linking them with a variety of making skills, from basic weaving with dwarf willow to coil basketry and solar dye jar experiments, this program is a re-mix of our FORAGE program and the 2018 Trillium Community Dyers Club.
Sponsored by Vancouver Park Board Arts Culture and Engagement, the $10 non-refundable booking fee goes towards snacks — and helps us know you will show up and not leave a space empty that someone else wanted.
Feb 16 – Winter Willow Harvest, tension trays and random weave – REGISTER
Feb 16 – Winter — A “willow tasting” of the three varieties that EartHand stewards between Trillium and MOP, this session is perfect for anyone curious to ‘meet’ willow and try their hand at weaving with it in a fun, exploratory atmosphere. Sharon and Rebecca will introduce a selection of forms and techniques suitable for beginners, including Catalan style tension trays, random weave, and if the willow permits, stripping and weaving with bark strips. This is a free program sponsored by the Vancouver Park Board, the $10 registration fee goes towards a homemade lunch for the group.
Due to the cold snap this session takes place at MacLean Park Studio — indoors! — at 710 Keefer St in Strathcona
