Braided cat tails, cherry red dog wood & woven tree bark – these are the materials used to weave baskets with Sandi McNeil of Earth and Vine.
Sandi leads workshops on basket weaving and wire tree sculpture making at a cozy studio space tucked away in the natural setting that is Kawartha Lakes. In the winter, warm cookies are served from atop the wooden stove that heats the studio. During the warmer months, when weather permits, workshops are held outside. Sandi encourages workshop participants to gather inspiration (and materials) from nature and there is no better place than Kawartha Lakes to do so.
