Have you ever wondered just how a fabric is put together? Well, weaving warp and weft threads is one way and you can learn how to create basic forms with this traditional weaving technique.
Participants should be able to complete a small bowl or mini wall hanging during the workshop.
Desiree Walker is a proud First Nation woman, local elder, and artist who was taught weaving many years ago and has made this traditional skill the main focus of her life.
