Western red cedars stand as one of the oldest and most revered trees in the forests of Stanley Park. Join us as Contessa Brown Qmdmaxl of the Heiltsuk Nation shares the sacred place of cedar bark in Northwest Indigenous culture and guides us in some foundational weaving techniques.

 

Participants are provided with prepared cedar bark, with Contessa sharing the process of harvesting, cleaning, beating, and splitting the materials. After a tutorial on weaving techniques, participants will create their own small baskets to take home.
