Cattails are so very adaptable! In this class, we will coil them and learn to create a circular basket as big as your skill and energy will allow. Materials will be provided and lessons in how to collect, sort, store and soak for use will be given. The resulting basked will likely be approximately 4 inches in diameter and 1-3 inches high. The sewing techniques learned are easily adapted to bigger baskets and ornaments.
"The tour of the Precinct was really interesting and very engaging for the children. There were so many hands on activities for them to participate in that they were always engaged. I love that they are allowed to touch and explore many of the items around the precinct. That makes such a difference to keep them engaged, on task and motivated. The learning connections between what we talked about in school and what we saw were evident in the conversations between the kids and the interpreters."
