 Jessica Silvey

Coast Salish Weaver & Fibre Artist

I am a self taught weaver of Coast Salish and Portugese descent, of the Silvey Family of Egmont, BC.

Many of my childhood hours were spent with my paternal Grandmother in the forest. It is my favourite place to be, surrounded by cedar trees and silence.

I have learned traditional techniques from research as well as trial and error. I harvest and prepare my own materials. When I am ready to weave, the most time consuming work has been completed. Weaving is my passion and therapy for my soul.
