Join locally based Anishinaabe/Ojibwe interdisciplinary artist Amanda Wood, for an interactive afternoon of sharing stories, tea and learning to make your own basket to bring home. Using (lovingly) hand picked and processed materials such as Birch tree bark and Cedar roots.
All supplies provided/previously prepared for assembly, and light refreshments of wild tea and fresh bannok will be available.
Weaving stories, traditions and symbolism. Amanda integrates her own Anishinaabe/Ojibwe culture within the community around her. One that is far from any Ojibwe territory-as she resides as guest on the unceded lands stewarded by the Lheidli T’enneh Nation. Amanda believes in the connection of story sharing and land based expressions of art. She is currently attending her first year in Canadas only national Indigenous multi-disciplinary arts and language college, En’owkin Centre. Located in Penticton, BC. In the National Indigenous Professional Artist Training program.
