Kalapuya Cattail Mat Weaving Workshop
Spend the afternoon with visiting artist Stephanie Wood as she teaches students about Native American culture and her family background in basket and mat weaving. Students will learn how to process tule, prepare it for weaving and have a completed mat by the end of the class to take home. Each student will learn different weaving techniques-plaiting, twining, triple-strand twining and a traditional rim. Adults will help their children make a traditional Willamette Valley Indian mat. One mat per child, and one mat per adult.
