Basket Workshop a Natural Weave…….

Published By on May 11th, 2004 in Edge Insider

The flowers may not be ready for picking but there was lots of harvesting going on at Northern Edge Algonquin on Saturday. Our womens creative day of Basket making out of natural homegrown fibers was amazing. Raspberry cane, fallen birch bark, cedar bark,lots of grapevine(imported from Southern Ontario with our basket guru Lynn Kennedy)were some of the amazing gifts from nature we used to weave beatiful baskets. As I collected I felt thankful for the privilage to live so close to nature in this beauiful region called Algonquin. I now look at these natural weaving materials with a new eye and excitement for what one can create with just a little imagination.
