Why Weaving?
The ancient art of hand weaving is a form of storytelling that’s been used for centuries to express, preserve, and share culture or ideas with others. Colour, texture, and patterns help us to feel the emotions poured into each handmade creation in ways that other mediums will never be able to.

Our hope is that by weaving together, we can facilitate a visual representation of connection and interconnection in our community at a time when gatherings are not always possible.

The final creation will be proudly displayed at the Canada Games Centre as inspiration to continue telling our stories.

“I would like for the pieces to encourage people who may not consider them self “creative” or “artistic” to explore different art forms. Working with your hands in this way can be extremely therapeutic and part of my vision is for everyone to be able to feel a part of creating something beautiful that they may not have had the interest or courage to attempt on their own” ~ Kelly Weatherby, artist in charge
