Using tule- a common species of sedge- we will weave an Owens Valley Paiute-style scoop-shaped basket. These baskets were traditionally used for gathering berries and for storing honey-dew collected from the leaves of common reed. Several unusual weaving techniques will be demonstrated and practiced during this workshop and there will also be an option of adding a willow rod for extra strength. Participants will leave the day with their own tule basket and a new skill set. No previous experience required.

Instructed by Charles Kennard

-Youth, ages 12 and up, are welcome with adult supervision.

-If you have any special circumstances or questions, please contact us at fieldinstitute@ptreyes.org.
