Over millennia, our ancestors have built homes, made tools and clothing, harvested and cooked food, and created beautiful art with plants. Through careful observation, they noticed qualities that help plants to survive in their environment, and they used those qualities to create their own technologies. In this workshop, we will explore native plants including nettle, fireweed, cattail, cedar, and willow, that are used to make cordage, mats, baskets, and other useful tools. Participants will gain skills on how to teach basic cordage and mat-making techniques, and will walk away with a curriculum and a teaching kit.
Taught by Charlene Koutchak, Mariana Harvey, and Aleta Poste.
