This two-day weaving workshop will explore patterns and a variety of
natural materials, allowing each participant to create a 5”x5” basket
with a red cedar bark structure. Tools and barks will be provided, just
bring a small pairing knife and your creativity.

Amy Robertson began weaving in 2002, on Cortes Island, BC, starting with
old cedar bark found on the forest floor. Soon after, she learned the craft
of willow weaving and combined the materials to make bicycle baskets. In
2011, preferring the flexibility and quality of cedar, Amy met a Haida
Indigenous teacher, where she learned both harvesting and weaving
techniques. Since then, Amy has returned each year to Massett, Haida Gwaii,
to study with a Master weaver, Marlene Liddle. Amy produces a variety of
woven baskets, covers for bottles & books, placemats, card-holders and
bracelets. Her craft work has been shown in Victoria, Vancouver, and on
Quadra and Cortes Islands, with a signature piece at the Hershel Supply
Company store in Gastown in Vancouver. Amy teaches weaving wherever there
is interest, providing a range of materials, styles and projects to anyone
wanting to explore their creativity.

With gratitude as guests, North Van Arts activities take place on the
unceded territories of the Səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh),
Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
