Basket and Cordage Making
Guild members will show their work. They also will teach visitors how to make cordage and create a bracelet they can take home.
The indigenous peoples of the Columbia River – Chinookan, Nez Perce, Yakama, and Umatilla – made baskets for gathering and storage. Their techniques were handed down generation to generation, and influence both native and non-native basket makers today.
The Columbia Basin Basketry Guild was formed in 1989 by a small group of basket makers from the Portland and Vancouver area so that basket makers could share ideas, information, and techniques with each other and with the community. Its mission is to preserve, promote, and teach the art of basketry. Today the guild has more than 175 members. www.basketryguild.org
