I-Hos Gallery Cedar Hat Workshop
During the I-Hos Gallery Night Market, The I-Hos Gallery is offering a weaved cedar hat workshop, facilitated by weaver Toni Frank from Sechelt Band. Toni’s mother and father are K’ómoks band members and that is the connection she has to the K’ómoks people. Toni harvests all her own cedar and does it in the highest, respectful and traditional manner possible. Toni will have the hat molds and the cedar all cut and ready for you to begin weaving your hat. You keep your weaved cedar hat when finished but must hand in the hat molds to Toni when completed. Toni will also have other cedar wares on show and available for purchase such as baskets, roses and more. Her assistant is her young daughter Tanisha who started weaving at the young age of 7 years old.
The cedar hat workshop takes place from 3pm-9pm, on August 2nd and 3rd, 2014.
