Coast Salish Cedar Dyeing Workshop
Coast Salish Cedar Dyeing Workshop with Jessica Silvey SATURDAY APRIL 13, 2019 | 10 AM – 4 PM
Join master weaver and dyer Jessica Silvey for a one-day cedar dyeing workshop.
Using the plants and minerals that were harvested and prepared by Jessica Silvey herself, participants will learn how to make natural plant dyes and earth pigments. Participants will gain hands-on experience working with these dyes to paint onto cedar bark.
Jessica is a self-taught weaver and dyer of Coast Salish and Portuguese descent of the Silvey family in Egmont, BC. Many of her childhood hours were spent with her paternal grandmother in the forest where she learned many of the techniques she will be sharing. Combined with her natural curiosity for experimentation, she has mastered the delicate science of dyeing.
Workshop fee includes all materials and light lunch.
