Saturday June 24, 1:00pm

Coiling is a basketry technique practiced in Native American communities across the continent, with traditional patterns, materials, and construction style varying by region. Join artist and educator Eva Newell (Member of Pokanoket Tribe, Pokanoket Nation; Cape Sable Island Wampanoag, Nauset and Cree descent) for a beginner’s workshop in which participants will construct a mini coil basket using modern materials. Embellish the basket with beads for a unique creation. If this workshop catches your fancy, it will be a good foundation for a future workshop with more traditional materials.

Please note: Due to the patience and dexterity required for this project, this workshop is best suited for participants ages 12 and up.
Space is limited and pre-registration is requested. Please visit our website to register via Eventbrite. Questions? Please email [email protected]. Cost of participation, including materials: $25 for Non-Members, $20 for Members.
