Weaved Lids, 2008

Rosedale Ravine Trail, Toronto; Industrial

Using the coffee wastes from Tim Horton’s and Starbucks, a birdfeeder can be weaved using a special tie-and-span technique. Equipped with spring suspensions and seed pods, the feeder is designed for Toronto’s Rosedale Ravine and its local Yellow Pine Warblers. It was well recieved and was invited to showcase at Canada Bloom’s 2008.
