State Indian Museum Presents Special Basket Weaving Demo This Saturday!

State Indian Museum Presents Special Basket Weaving Demo This Saturday!
Don’t miss special basket weaving demonstrations on March 3 & April 14!

The State Indian Museum is proud to offer basket weaving demonstrations by Dixie Rogers on two upcoming Saturdays, March 3, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.  

Mesmerizing to watch and fun to learn, Dixie Rogers is a traditional basket weaver from the Karuk tribe and uses a technique called Closed Half Twist-Twined With Overlay.   She incorporates a number of native California plants into her intricate and original basket creations.  There is no cost for these special demonstrations although regular Museum admission prices do apply.
