Steeped in Northwest traditions, this basket is created with striking bands of cured salmon, rockfish or ling cod skins as they are woven in a twill-work pattern highlighted by the beauty of western red cedar.  Students will learn the weaving techniques of twill-work, strait twining, three-strand twining along with a double folded rim. These foundational weaving methods can be applied to other projects creating opportunity for many more baskets to come.  Weavers can embellish their baskets with small shells, beads or other coastal objects. Join us to explore Northwest traditions while working with these beautiful materials.
