The wagon includes displays of fibre samples using green-waste and invasive plants up-purposed into basketry objects. Sharon will demonstrate spinning and instruct visitors on how to make rope.

About Sharin Kallis

Sharon Kallis discovers the inherent material potential in a landscape with a “one mile diet” approach to sourcing art materials. Involving community in connecting traditional hand techniques with invasive species or garden waste, site-specific installations are created that become ecological interventions.

Kallis is a Vancouver-based artist who has engaged with communities at home and abroad. She is the founding executive director of the non-profit, EartHand Gleaners Society.
