Basket Workshop, GGF 9/13

with Charlie Kennard and Sukey Parmelee
in the Green Gulch Garden

Saturday, September 13, 2014
10 am - 3 pm

Come to the Green Gulch garden for a day of participation in the ancient craft of basketry. Using a common marsh plant, tule, we will make lightweight twined baskets decorated with several different weaving techniques, suitable for gathering berries or holding small fruits. These types of baskets were made by many native California tribes and are sometimes called Indian paper bags, being common and quickly made.

Participants may bring their own lunch and work with Charlie during lunch time or eat in the dining room. Students should bring large kitchen scissors and a water bowl.

Fees: $60; $54 current SFZC members; $48 limited income. Some partial scholarships available (About Registration, Scholarships and Cancellations.)
  • Please bring your own bag lunch, or let us know if you would like to have a lunch from the Green Gulch Farm kitchen (suggested donation $15 onsite). Also bring large kitchen scissors and a water bowl.
