Sharon Kallis will give an informal talk about her multi-year journey getting from seed to wearable garment, and her current bi-coastal weave-along, featuring East coast and West coast nettles and linens.

This event will be concurrently streamed via Zoom. 


After the talk, Plant Kingdom artist David Gowman and his band The Legion of Flying Monkeys will be doing a short set in the gallery!

The Legion of Flying Monkeys (LFM) are a small but determined Vancouver protest folk-rock group playing with drums, ukulele, accordion, sometimes marimba, and curious, wooden trumpets called 'fuhorns', built by bandleader, Mr. Fire-Man (Gowman). LFM music is designed to engage, to pull the audience into a harmless, merry singalong while destroying capitalism, religion and greed.
