Not just for the birds...
Sweetgrass Basket making
November 12, 2022
10 am - 4 pm

Basket making is one of the most ancient of human crafts. There is a Native American legend that tells how the First Peoples learned to make baskets by watching birds build their nests.  Basketry is a local art form; using materials and methods based on the local materials, plants and natural dyes found in an area.  In the northeast, many Woodland Indians created coiled baskets from sweet grass.  Sometimes sweet grass was used only as decorative adornment, shaped in varied shapes and sizes.

On Saturday, November 12, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Museum of Indian Culture, 2825 Fish Hatchery Road, Allentown, PA 18103, sweet grass artist, Lawrencine Harris, will demonstrate the techniques used by Woodland Indians for coiling sweet grass into storage baskets and small trinkets.

 

Admission includes demonstration and museum tour: $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and children 12-17, and children under 12 are free.
