In this workshop, Simpson will teach about the plant materials that will be used as well as others that could be used and will welcome a discussion and questions about plant fibre and weaving.

Through demonstration, Simpson will show three traditional weaving techniques, randing, twining, and cording. Each participant will be given materials to create a plant fibre trivet, coaster or bracelet. These basic weaving techniques are sufficient to allow the completion of the project in the time permitted. The techniques are transferable and will provide the participants with the skills necessary to create other objects in the future, such as a basket or place mat as well as how to identify plants suitable for weaving.
