Indigenous Cordage with Pat Courtney Gold
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Pat Courtney Gold
Cordage and rope-making are some of the most fundamental elements of basketry and weaving, and have been valued as essential tools since the beginning of civilization. In NW Native culture, rope and cordage were handmade using various plant fibers, such as nettle and cedar bark. In this 3-hour workshop, students will learn about local NW plant fibers used to make cordage and string, while learning how to process plant fibers and create cordage. WildCraft is honored to offer this foundational workshop led by Wasco Elder, Pat Courtney Gold.
