Jessica Silvey is a Coast Salish Basket Maker, Salish Wool Weaver, Historian and Cultural Instructor. She was born and raised in Egmont, BC. Jessica is a self-taught weaver; her plant-based medicines and natural dyes are from knowledge handed down from her paternal Grandmother. Jessica's favourite place to be is in the forest, surrounded by cedar trees and silence.
Jessica will have a selection of woven baskets and blankets on display, be weaving on-site, and teach attendees how to weave a bracelet.
