Seaside and Shoreline Spinners' Walking Club

The Seaside and Shoreline Spinners’ Walking Club will develop a walked and measured map created by community labour. The club is open to everyone and will help form a body of research on coastal materials and techniques that are guided by First Nations sensibilities and concerns. It is designed to deepen and expand discussion around where we live, traditions connected to living from the land and sea, and contemporary foraging best practices. Led by Tracy Williams and Sharon Kallis.

5 nights of walking and spinning wool or plant fibres during slow meanderings on, or towards, the Ambleside coastline

Date: July 30–August 3
Time: 6:30-8:30 p.m
