Feel the fibrous bark, smell the fresh, forest-y aroma, and come join Ali and Bella Casey from Red Cedar Woman Studio for an afternoon of sharing and cedar weaving. You will learn the importance of cedar in Coast Salish culture, how the bark is traditionally harvested and prepared, and how to weave a small basket that you can take home with you! 


Red Cedar Woman is an Indigenous-owned and operated company based in Sechelt, BC, focused on creating unique and authentic Indigenous items. They also teach basket weaving workshops in their community and throughout the Lower Mainland. To learn more about the work of Jessica Silvey and others at Red Cedar Woman, be sure to check out their webpage (redcedarwoman.ca), Jessica Silvey’s Instagram (@weavingwoman), and the studio’s Instagram (@redcedarwomanweavingstudio).

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
