Notes
Title based on caption
Collected by editorial for use in an April 2002 issue of the Burnaby NewsLeader
Caption from metadata for 535-2329-1: "Norbert Wuensche checks one of the many varieties of rhododendron growing around his home in North Burnaby. He's been an avid hobbyist of the flower for more than 20 years, and many of the hybrids in his garden are his own creation."
Caption from metadata for 535-2329-2: "Norbert Wuensche checks the stigma of one of his rhododendron blossoms. By cutting back the petals to discourage bees from cross-pollenating his flowers, then carefully collecting the pollen and mixing it with pollen from other varieties, he's able to create his own rhododendron hybrids."
Caption from metadata for 535-2329-3: "Young plants that are the result of his breeding efforts are raised in his tiny greenhouse until they're strong enough to be planted outdoors."
Caption from metadata for 535-2329-4: "Norbert Wuensche stands in his back garden, which he's built into a showcase for many varieties of rhododendron, some of which he's developed himself."

Item consists of a video recording of a live Zoom webinar hosted by Burnaby Village Museum Assistant Curator, Kate Petrusa. The webinar is titled "Weaving and Learning through Art" and is presented by Nicole Preissl, Explorative Designer of Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Stó:lō decent. The Zoom webinar is the fifth in a series of six "Neighbourhood Speaker series" webinars exploring a range of topics shared by Indigenous speakers and knowledge keepers that were presented and made available to the public between April 27 and May 12, 2021. The live webinar was also made available on the Burnaby Village Museum's facebook page. Community members were invited to participate by bringing questions during the interactive online session. Nicole supports her presentation with slides and provides a hands on demonstration on weaving. Prior to the webinar, participants were offered materials that were prepared and made available from Burnaby Village Museum. In this interactive webinar, Nicole Preissl, explores the importance of plants within Coast Salish culture and demonstrates the traditional technique of rope-making. In the first part of her presentation, Nicole provides examples of indigenous plants and trees that grow in British Columbia and shares information on thier historical and cultural significance, medicinal and edible properties and how to identify them. Nicole also shares her own experiences and appreciation for natural materials and provides examples of her artwork. In the second half of Nicole's presentation participants are invited to join her demonstration in learning basic weaving techniques. Nicole provides two hands-on demonstrations to follow, one with yarn and one with iris leaves. During and follwing the presentation, Nicole Preissl takes questions from the audience that are moderated by the host, Kate Petrusa.
History/Biography
Nicole Preissl is an explorative designer who uses natural materials to influence her work. From both Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Stó:lō decent, she began introducing traditional artistic customs into her practice as a means of connecting to her culture. In her art practice she uses natural fibres and materials to create textile based designs. Her areas of interest are natural plant dyes, weaving Coast Salish style garments and using raw hide to create thought provoking design pieces.
