You will learn to weave using invasive species, learn about the fibers, how to prepare them for weaving, the importance of removing them safely. Weaving techniques date back 10,000 years and provide strong connection to ancestors, past lives, family/community and self. Weaving brings in new creative energy and growth.
Weaving is a creative meditation that is really special in a group environment, it brings free flowing peaceful energy to the maker and a greater sense of connection to those around you. It can be done anywhere anytime with the right knowledge using many different fibers and is a great solo meditation and creative outlet and can be done anywhere anytime.
The Woven Dream Weaving Blog provides more information on the process.
