Georgia Bennett, Haida Weaver
My name is Georgia Bennett, I was born in Masset, British Columbia. I am of Haida ancestry and I belong to the Yahgu'laanaas Raven Clan. I come from a long line of weavers and carvers, my great grandparents are the renown artist and weaver Charles and Isabella Edenshaw, my grandparents are Agnes and Alex Yeltatzie (Yeleaze), my parents are Norma Adams and Milton Liddle.
I use a combination of traditional skills combined with contemporary materials which gives me limitless color combinations that I can use to make one of a kind pieces of art .
I am an established Ravens' Tail Weaver striving to become a Master in my chosen field of Traditional Ravens' Tail Weaving by seeking mentors that are skilled and willing to share their knowledge.
I was first introduced to Ravens' Tail Weaving in 2004 with Master weaver Evelyn Vanderhoop, I wove under her instruction for a few years then with master weaver William White in 2011. I was introduced into Chilkat weaving in 2013 under Master weaver Evelyn Vanderhoop, which I find fascinating.
I am greatly humbled and feel very grounded when I am doing what I love, WEAVING...........
