This section documents many of the workshops I’ve done where an immersive experience with Western Red Cedar is my emphasis and goal, more than any product that students may create. The names of these workshops, their duration, and the project outcomes are varied to fit the venues I was invited to teach in.
Cedar From Tree To Pouch, Cedar From Bark To Basket, Artistic Cedar Weaving, Cedar Limb Bread Tray, Woven Cedar Satchel, Woven Cedar Wall Basket, Small Woven Cedar Basket, Small Cedar Projects, are some of the workshops I have offered.
A Japanese concept of treasuring meetings with people.
