Silverberries or wolf-willow berries, are traditionally used to make beautiful natural rosaries by the Metis people. These mealy, sparkly berries can be used to bead clothing, or make jewelry and regalia. We can even make a traditional dessert from the silverberry bush!
We will harvest our own wolf willow berries, and use them to make beads and silverberry fudge. You can then make your own rosary, prayer beads or necklace, while learning about the food and medicine benefits of this plant.
This workshop takes place in the cozy Herbal Healing apothecary in central Calgary. There is space for about 12 participants. Minors are permitted, but please be aware that we may be working with a hot stove and sharp tools while making our recipes/crafts.
