Ladysmith high school students’ Cedar Weave taking shape

A Cedar Weave being created by Ladysmith Secondary School students enrolled in the Language and Land Based Learning course is beginning to take shape in the foyer.

The artwork is being created with the help of Stz’uminus carver John Marston.

As part of the class taught by Bill Taylor and Mandy Jones, students are taking photos, writing, carving, weaving or participating through other forms of physical education – such as canoeing or walks in the forest as the weather permits.

The young minds will also have the opportunity to learn the traditional Coast Salish language, Hul’qumi’num, while meeting with Stz’uminus elders.
