Ever wonder if all that ivy, blackberry and knotweed in Everett Crowley Park could be used for something? Join the Everett Crowley Urban Weavers group to learn how to harvest, prepare, and weave with invasive species. Each month, foraging walks through the park to identify and gather will be followed by tea and techniques in the lounge: from rope-making, plaiting and twining, to more advanced projects such as frame basketry, sunhats and scultpural installations, depending on interest from the group.
