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

For more information about this special event or other activities and events happening at the State Indian Museum visit parks.ca.gov/indianmuseum.

The State Indian Museum is operated by California State Parks and supported by the California Indian Heritage Foundation.

The museum is open Wednesdays through Sundays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day) for self-guided tours and school group visits. The museum is located in midtown Sacramento at 2618 K St. on the grounds of Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park.

Current exhibits include traditional basketry, beadwork, ceremonial regalia and hunting and fishing items associated with many of the tribes of California, as well as contemporary artwork.
