Puget Salish Basketry: gathering, processing, researching, and weaving techniques of Indigenous people.  Because some weaving experience is expected, send 3 images of your baskets to Yvonne Peterson for viewing prior to registering for the class. 

The initial workshop will be one intensive weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 9-5); students will then commit to an individual or collaborative project accruing 40 hours and then return for presentations in the Fiber Arts Studio on a day to be determined by students.  A Tribal group project may be proposed, designed around 40 hours in class and 40 hours off campus.

4 credits – attend the initial class, complete a project, and make a presentation.  Submit a portfolio.

8 credits – complete 4 credit activities and attend several workshops off campus to tribal museums, gather several plants for basketry use, conduct ethnographic interviewing with local Tribal weavers, travel with the Skokomish River Road Canoe Family for a minimum of 1 week-end.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:
