Corn Dollies and Wheat Weaving in Vancouver, BC

Brian Jones

Born and raised in the border lands between England and Wales on a small family traditional farm, Brian learned in his teen years to make the corn dollies that are part of the wheat weaving tradition based on the archaic harvest rituals of that area. Brian worked with his Dad on a variety of weaving initiatives to conserve and promote the art of the welsh wheat weaver during the 1970s when there was a revival of folk music, dance and art in that area.
