Native American Basket Weaving with Brian Krehbiel. Join us in making a small basket using local cat tail, juncus and three-square sedge.

Participants will be introduced to the art of basket making during this great workshop led by Brian Krehbiel of the Confederated Tribes of the Grande Ronde. Brian has 15+ years as a tribal educator. Although Brian is an enrolled member of Grand Ronde, his tribal lineage descends from Nipissing band of Ojibway, Chinook, Luckiamute Kalapuya, Umpqua, Iroquois, Shasta, Tillamook, Takilma, Mary’s River Kalapuya, German, Irish and Spanish. Brian will give a short presentation on gathering native vegetation and materials, processing and basket making, along with how he learned to make baskets. After the introduction, he will guide 15 people in making a small basket from start to finish using native plants that he and others will provide.

Registration Required – Those under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
