Back by popular demand, the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives celebrates the traditions of the Coast Salish people with a cedar hat weaving workshop, facilitated by Jessica Casey.
The two-day workshop takes place March 9 and 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
During the course of the weekend, participants will learn the skills of cedar weaving and complete a unique and versatile hat to take home. The cost of the workshop is $250 and includes all the supplies necessary. There are no kitchen facilities at the museum, so it is recommended that participants bring a packed lunch and snacks. No previous experience is necessary.
Casey is a self-taught weaver of Coast Salish and Portuguese decent. She was born and raised in Egmont, but currently resides in Sechelt. Combining traditional Coast Salish construction and design with her own artistic vision, she creates beautiful baskets, hats and mats, as well as cedar root baskets. Her creations can be found in numerous private collections worldwide and are now available in notable art galleries in the Lower Mainland.
