Basket Weaving Classes at the Kimball Art Center
Native American basket weaving traditions come to Park City! Check out the kids, family, and adult workshops taking place at the Kimball Art Center April 21, 22 and 23. Visiting Artist Stephanie is an enrolled member of The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon. She is Santiam and Yoncalla Kalapuya, Cow Creek Umpqua, Takelma Rogue River, Clackamas Chinook and Iroquois. She grew up listening to her mother, my Chich (Grandmother in Chinuk Wawa) and aunties telling stories of her family’s weaving traditions. Family baskets and weaving traditions have been passed down through seven generations, and are still continued today through their teachings and basket making. She feels that it is very important to preserve our history; and as a young Native American tribal member, it is part of her job to help educate and document cultural heritage and traditions. She is committed to preserving their cultural practices for future generations and to continue on the traditions of her Elders.
Come spend the weekend with Stephanie and immerse in the craft and culture of Native American basket weaving! Register in advance at kimballartcenter.org
