Sweetgrass Coiled Brooch Workshop

January 26 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

- $42.50 – $50.00

Learn basketry coiling on a miniature scale and create a delicate brooch perfect for a handwoven or knitted shawl. Sweetgrass, possessing a natural smell resembling vanilla, has both medicinal and sacred smudging uses with First Nations and is also used by people around the world for basketmaking. The techniques learned in this workshop will show you how sweetgrass coiling can be scaled up for larger baskets. Imagine the potential for drying grasses from your fall garden and making them into everything from baskets to jewellery. Maximum 10 students. Instructor: Christine Muir
