Join us for a weekend of creativity and connection as we explore the timeless art of basketry, weaving, and fibre arts. In our workshops, “Together We Are Stronger,” we celebrate the power of community and collaboration while delving into a diverse range of fibre techniques and traditions.

Willow Basket Making: Discover the age-old craft of willow basketry as you learn to weave beautiful and functional baskets. From traditional to contemporary designs, explore the versatility of willow and master techniques for creating baskets that are both durable and elegant. Cultivating your own willow patch will be explored as well.

Working with Wool: Dive into the world of wool as you explore techniques for processing and working with this versatile fiber. From washing and carding to spinning and dyeing, learn the essential skills needed to transform raw fleece into yarn and fabric. Experience the meditative rhythm of spinning and weaving as you learn to transform fibre into yarn using a spinning wheel or drop spindle. Explore different spinning techniques and fibre preparations, and discover the joy of creating your own custom yarns.

Body Loom Nature Woven Tapestry: Connect with nature as you weave a tapestry using a unique body loom technique. Utilizing natural materials such as branches, vines, and fibers gathered from the landscape, create a collaborative woven artwork that reflects the beauty and diversity of the natural world, while learning the basics of this ancient art form.
