My name is Candice Cullum. I am a wild crafter and wild harvester based in Kneehill County Alberta. Being a forth generation Alberta farm kid, picking berries, harvesting and making use of what nature provided was a part of our daily life.

I spend the warmer months volunteering as the Red Deer regional coordinator for the Alberta Mycological Society. With a deep passion for wild fungi I carry a lot of baskets.. Which easily lead into my next passion, weaving wild willow!


When the cold weather sets in and I can no longer harvest fungi, the willow beckons me. The lovely variations of colour and texture achieved through wild weaving means no matter how many I make, I can never make two the same!


An art form that is slowly falling away made it difficult to find classes in my region so I began learning online and making tutorials where I saw they were lacking.

The need for more sustainable compostable methods to shop and carry inspired me to begin teaching anyone who was willing.


From a very small Facebook group of 8 local beginners we’ve grown to include folks spanning across the globe.
