August holidays- but Maker Nights back for September!

August brings an end to the spring and summer maker series for holiday time, but no fear! Joy and Karen will be hosting Maker Nights in September on Mondays  starting after Labour Day weekend.

September 14, 21 and 28 6-8.30pm

Remember- it gets chilly!  bring a sweater or jacket, outdoor lighting will assist us and indoor container space might be called upon should weather not be cooperative for outdoor picnic table work any longer.

Bring a project you have on the go- or help out with flax processing or other community projects. After the 28th, Maker Nights will resume next spring.

You never know what can happen at a  maker social night…our last maker session for July found us helping Tracy Williams with a very special task: blending mountain goat fibre with eagle down, cattail fluff, and other traditional wild fibres and then spinning to assist in her ongoing research into ancestral Squamish methods of clothing production. What a treat!

Sunday Garden Work Party

July 12, 9-11am

Keeping it early in the day before the heat gets too intense; come assist in  an early summer harvest of various weaving fibres and help with general weeding. Bring a sun hat!

Learn the  basics  about how to identify what is  harvest-ready and good weaving fodder. For harvest: some cattails, yarrow for dye, various weaving grasses. We will “put up” our bounty for late summer and fall weaving projects. If the heat drives us out of the beds we can end our session in the shade of the shipping container breaking  flax and prepping linen for spinning. This is our last official work party for the summer.IMG_1751

Social Maker Nights continue into July

We have had a great turn out for our June Tuesday nights- carvers  working on our cedar bench have made great progress, and much weaving and spinning has been taking place.

Thanks to the folks who have helped harvest flowers for dye, process linen, and even remove flower caps and seed sort our marigolds!

This Tuesday is our last night with the carvers from Uncle Hoonki’s fabulous horn shop working with us, then we switch to Monday nights for the month of July, 6-9pm- do join in for more fibre-based work, gathering, processing and weaving!
