Become comfortable weaving on a form, practicing twining techniques, and building skills required for weaving garden hats in 2021! Garden ornamental and invasive seasonal green-waste are the focal materials to be finding and weaving for this guild. Participants will share virtually what materials they’re investigating, with time each session spent covering a required technique from starts, shaping, adding materials and spokes, finishes, and braiding or rope strap options. Additional time each week for round table questions and sharing of successes with the group.

Some weaving experience is a bonus but not necessary – guild members may need to do their own research and youtube deep dives for additional weaving assistance. Depending on the speed you work, you may make several projects throughout the guild or do less weaving between sessions and complete one project.

Led by Jaymie Johnson based in Nelson BC on the traditional territory of the Sinixt people, the material focus will be plants from this region, people in other areas are welcome to participate.
