Learning to basket weave with Cedar Bark with a master weaver and creating Mixed Media Canvas
My older sister and I spent two days 4 hours total, learning to weave baskets with cedar back by a Jamestown S'Klallam tribal member Cathy McGregor. My first basket was a bit lopsided I'm afraid as the whole process was WAY more difficult than I had previously thought! The first night that I went to weaving class I had just come from a different class at Doodlebugs in Sequim, WA where I took an art class on how to do mixed media with Faber-Castells Gelatos. I will include a picture of my completed mixed media project. Needless to say I have also been doing Artist trading cards with Mary who is a teacher of K-5th graders. I have traded 20 ATC's to date. I didn't scan or take any pictures of those prior to sending them. My bad. In the future I will include pictures. Not that I have any followers or anybody who subscribes or reads my posts. Mostly it is just a diary at this point. I am learning to do all of these crafting mediums as I have two rooms in my house which are FULL to the ceiling of craft supplies and I need to start using them up vs. buying more. Signing off for now! Christine PS The lady sitting next to me in the weaving picture is my oldest sister Lenora!
