Three Fates Weaving
Weaving, like spinning, encompasses the practical with the spiritual. Like the spinning wheel that turns the year, so our lives are woven with one another and with the creatures and plants of the earth.
Every First People on this earth has created weaving in some way, shape or form; using a myriad of supplies that were available to them and creating a skill that included necessity and beauty.
At Bee Glade we grow willows specifically for folks who basket weave and the versatility, strength and beauty of these plants are remarkable. Here again is the cohesion of nature: moths, spiders, birds and plants creating the pattern that is woven with the seasons.

Weaving with Nature
Then and now, we use organic materials to make bowls, containers, cordage and many other purposeful things. These are examples of designing with nature.
The creator of these baskets, a friend in Glade, says that her work is the practice of using plants that would usually be considered a waste or a nuisance. The result is the creation of beautiful and useful items for everyday life. In so doing, we explore and learn about all types of life. The experience of weaving, creating, learning and observing leads us also to respect all types of life...♥
