Upcoming Workshops and Events in 2023!

New Fibre Hub at The Spool Sewing Studio

Past Workshops and Events

We wrapped up the season with a series of summer workshops using plant materials grown from seed at the Innisfree Farm fibre and dye garden that we initiated this year or resulting from pullings of invasives we organized in collaboration with local environmental groups.

We are so grateful to be able to learn from plants and people in the unceded traditional territories of K’omoks, ɬaʔamɩn gɩǰɛ (Tla’amin/ Sliammon), Homalco, We Wai Kai and We Wei Kum, and Hul’qumi’num Treaty Group – the traditional keepers of these lands.

Human faces are so different and you can recognize so many of them. If you can do the same with plants, they can become your friends.
