03 Jan Weave & Sing
This workshop is designed to awaken ancient memory, as we simultaneously weave our voices and move our hands — over and under; over and under.
We will begin by practicing simple vocal warm-up techniques and learning several weaving songs with layered harmonies.
Once we have anchored these songs as a group, we will bring these weaving vocal harmonies into the literal weaving of baskets.
Each student will create a simple & rustic basket, made from locally-sourced blackberry bramble.
The emphasis will be on working with slowness and intention, allowing the songs and the rhythm of our hands to awaken an ancient knowing in us. We will invite our collective singing to infuse our baskets with beauty and belonging, so that they become symbols of these simple and nourishing ways.
Weave and Sing will be shared by Hanna Leigh
