Join us from June 21, Indigenous People’s Day until July 21 for a virtual weaving workshop with artist Violet Elliott/SNU’MEETHIA

Violet is cedar weaver from from Snuneymuxw, Stzuminus, Penalekut, and Cowichan now residing in Quamichan, which is in Cowichan. Violet has been weaving for over 25 years and her baskets, hats and purses are one-of-a-kind works of intricate traditional art. Her workshops impart the cultural values of working with cedar beyond the weaving techniques. Join us for a family-friendly maker session and learn to weave a headband with sacred traditional cedar!
