Cedar Bark Pouch
August 26 @ 9:00 am - August 27 @ 12:00 pm$170
This event is co-sponsored by the Lanark Highlands Basketry Museum and MERA Schoolhouse in MacDonald’s Corners, Ontario.
Come join me and weave a beautiful individualized small pouch with plant materials from the Pacific Northwest. Please note, similar materials can be found in our local area, so the skills you learn can be applied repeatedly. Joan uses her pouch to hold a cell phone and ID. We will begin with a discussion on how to respectfully harvest materials followed by a hands-on demonstration of how to prepare the materials we are going to use which include cedar bark, willow bark and sedge. Participants can design their pouch using different weave patterns presented which include a variety of plaiting, twining and twill variations. This course is good for beginners as well as experienced weavers.
