Enjoy a gentle morning forest walk with a master weaver and storyteller and learn to weave a cedar bracelet with naturally dyed fibres. Having learned from his elders, Dave will share the traditional plant names, uses, stories and cultural protocols of his people for plant harvest and use. Dave will bring cedar he has personally harvested and dyed with natural pigment in the traditional way for student use in making a cedar bracelet.
