Join us in this online workshop facilitated by Roxanne Charles and weave your own mini basket with found and recycled objects. As we see the effects of climate change and a rise in the levels of waste we produce, it is more important now than ever to recycle and reuse all that we can. Caring for our environment is a core belief of many Indigenous peoples. In this workshop, participants will learn the foundational techniques for mini basket weaving and the importance of caring for our natural world.
