As a Basket collector I have always admired the weaving of the Pacific Northwest.
You can only imagine how excited I am to have recently found out one of my Great Grandma’s baskets is on display in a Museum of Master Works right here in BC!My wife and I and few of my baskets on display Grandma Christine This basket is currently displayed at MOA at UBC
Pretty cool to find this on display! It was part of a collection of baskets and donated to the MOA several years ago.
I was excited to share this one I have (pictured below) with MOA staff member recently. We compared the similarities with the basket they have displayed currently in the Gallery of Northwest Coast Masterworks.Inherited basket woven by Christine
It is displayed with some of the greatest First Nation artists work of all time! It is currently labeled as Stolo? with Artist unknown.
My Great Grandma Christine made both of those amazing baskets! I look forward to the day when it is properly represented as Secwepemc and attributed to my Great Grandma Christine.
It has been wonderful to make this connectionI left behind a copy of this wonderful book with the curator to keep with the basket they have
I am currently weaving cedar baskets and hats myself. I am finding it to be a very therapeutic, grounding and a wonderful way to connect to the many gifts from the tree of life.
It is a way to connect to your ancestors. There is a close connection to my Great Grandma I also feel when working with cedar I can not explain in words… Happy weaving to all 🙂
Anyone wishing to learn traditional Haida weaving can drop in and learn from Todd Giihlgiigaa DeVries on Tuesday evenings from 5pm – 7:30pm learning how to make bracelets, headbands, small round baskets, small square baskets, coffee coasters, miniture hats, or start a project of your own. $5 per hour or $10 an evening. Add $5 if you need cut cedar bark. All interested are welcome! Address is 887 Keefer in Vancouver
A few pictures from the Salmon Arm Shuswap Middle school presentations.
I just wanted to express how grateful I am for the knowledge and weaving instruction Todd Giihlgiigaa DeVries provided myself, my wife and some of our friends as well as the many others at his public drop in weaving classes held in Vancouver on Tuesday nights.
For me it has truly been a way for me to connect with my ancestors. I feel my Great Grandmother the master Secwepemc weaver Christine Hardie herself smiling down on me when I am working with the sacred cedar tree bark.
It is a connection to the creator and the earth. It is very grounding and therapeutic. It is truly the tree of life, and learning this first hand has made my presentations so much more authentic and engaging. It is amazing to teach of this wonderful Superstore of a tree and our ancestors ways of creating so many items and products from her.
Haw’aa my friend, I am forever grateful for this amazing gift you shared with me that I now share with students and teachers on the BC Artifacts Mobile Museum Tours.
