Introduction to Twining with instructor Vera Longtoe Sheehan,
Elnu Abenaki Tribe
Twined baskets, bags and containers pre-date the ash splint
baskets that the Wabanaki people are known for. It is the oldest
method of basket making known in the North Eastern United
States. In this beginner level class, learn to twine by making a
small project, such as an ipod or cellphone holder, which you
get to bring home. These skills can then be applied toward
making a belt or strap. 3-4 hours.
Date June 29, 10am-4pm
