Time: 10am-4pm
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Jefferson Greene
Tuition: $140
Materials: $20

Jefferson Greene joins us from Warm Springs for a day of weaving and storytelling. In this workshop, students will create a small basket using all-natural hemp and pine needles. Jefferson will provide examples of pine needle basketry and offer demonstrations throughout class. While students weave, Jefferson may choose to share songs from the Columbia River Plateau related to basketry and the circle of life. Out of respect for the traditions, all songs are prohibited from being recorded and or videotaped and are strictly for participants. Each student may work at their own pace, and upon finishing, may start another basket until the 1-day course is complete. All Native Arts classes are offered at 50% off tuition for all people of North American indigenous descent. No previous experience necessary.
