Basket weaving demo at State Indian Museum

By From page B15 | July 13, 2012

The State Indian Museum is proud to offer another compelling basket weaving demonstration by Dixie Rogers on Saturday, July 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Mesmerizing to watch and fun to learn, 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 this special demonstration although regular museum admission prices do apply. Museum admission is $3 for adults; $2 for youths ages 6 to 17 and free for children 5 and under
