Event Notes


Salt Spring Basketry Guild members will teach how to make cordage (very thin rope) from a wide variety of natural materials. Think leaves (daffodil, iris, crocosmia), barks (willow, cedar), grasses (sisal, miscanthus). Participants are invited to drop by and try your hand at this age-old technique. There will be an unfinished basket that you can weave your cordage into and then enter your name in the draw. At the end of the workshop, the guild will draw a name and gift the finished the basket to the lucky winner.

Pre-register of 12. Can accept drop-ins as there is space throughout the 2 hours.
