Workshop description: In the Haida and many Northwest Coast cultures, the cedar tree is referred to as the tree of life. Many of our teachings come from the cedar tree; there is a lot to learn from her. Participants will learn about our traditional knowledge of the cedar; including the historical and spiritual values that go with it. You will learn how to weave cedar bark into a beautiful custom sized bracelet that you can use as a gift and/or to take home with you. All supplies are included. Remember to bring $10 for the the cedar. Todd has to harvest, cure and process the cedar himself which requires more time than is covered by the registration fee.

He offers workshops all over Vancouver and teaches senior citizens at Britannia’s 55+ facility. He weaves Haida history and spirituality in with the broad range of cedar weaving techniques.
