Put a northern twist on a southern hat weaving tradition and make a woven cattail hat to protect yourself from the sun during outdoor activities. Palm fronds are the materials most commonly used for this “strip plaiting” weaving project; however, native cattails work as a northern substitute. Learn how to weave your own hat and get some foundational basketmaking skills along the way. The first evening session will serve as a skill-builder in plaiting so that students will be able to finish their project in the remaining two days of the course.¬†Upon completion of your hat, students can choose to learn additional plaiting designs.
