Cattail Basket Weaving for Beginners



The cattail plant can be an incredible resource for food as well as many other uses. It is widely available and easy to harvest. In this class we will explore weaving with cattail leaves to make a mat or basket. We will visit cattails growing at the pond and discuss the harvesting process. We will then practice weaving with leaves previously harvested and prepared. This class is for those who wish to explore the basics of cattail weaving. All ages welcome!
