Weave a Coiled Straw Basket: Workshop with Charlie Kennard

When: Sun., April 3, 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. 2016

Here is a real treat of a workshop with weaving expert, Charles (Charlie) Kennard. Enjoy a delightful day full of hands-on learning in Heron Hall and around the peaceful Laguna Environmental Center grounds. Participants will have the choice of using a roadside grass, native deer grass (Muhlenbergia rigens), or rush (Juncus effusus), to begin a bowl-shaped basket made in a skep (bee-hive) weaving technique. Such containers can be used for honeybee swarm-catchers, for holding fruit or for dough-rising. We will be treated with bread fresh from the oven, and honey samples. $80. Pre-registration required:
