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.
