Join Stephanie Craig for a full-day basket weaving workshop! Stephanie is a seventh generation traditional basket weaver, Oregon Culture Keeper, I/TEK practitioner, anthropologist, and cultural museum consultant. Visit Stephanie’s website for more info.

In this class, students will learn about traditional lifeways, culture, traditional ecological knowledge, see samples of traditional foods, medicine and utilitarian plants. There will also be family belongings that have been passed down generations in Stephanie’s family, as well as traditional tools. Students will learn multiple traditional weaving techniques, including different starts and rims, and learn proper gathering, processing, cleaning, and storage methods. Students will complete and take home a finished woven cedar and sedge square basket by the end of the class. Basketry materials will be fully prepped for the students and are provided as part of the course fee. The workshop will be held at the White Oak Pavilion. $180 for members, $195 for non-Members. All traditionally harvested materials included in fee.
