Les Mains Guidées: Native American Finger Weaving
November 7, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$25
During November’s workshop, you will learn and work alongside Neka Mire of the Chitimacha tribe. Neka worked at Vermilionville as a tour guide and interpreted the Native American way of life for our visitors, sharing both fingerweaving and Chitimacha basketry. During the class, she will talk about the history and tradition of finger-weaving as she guides you in creating your own works of art. Spots are reserved on a first come, first serve basis. This class is limited to 12 participants. Cost is $25 per person to cover materials, all of which participants can take home to continue their craft at the close of the session. Participants must be at least 12 years old; children must be accompanied by an adult. We will be setting the workshop up following guidelines for social distancing, and we do request that all participants wear masks.
