Northwest Twined Pouch


10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum

Pat Courtney Gold will teach a class in the Northwest Twined Pouch weaving technique on Saturday, September 9, from 10 am to 4:30 pm. She will describe the traditional, natural materials used in this basket-weaving, and will also talk about the significance of the patterns and motifs used.

In this class the participants will create a fun project. The pouch will be plaited with red cedar bark, twined using northwest fibers: cedar bark, sedge and cattail leaves. Participants will learn how to soak, size, splice and twine plant fibers. A traditional folded-warp rim will finish the pouch, approximately 3-1/2 inches diameter and 4 inches tall.

This class is limited to 9 students. The class is 6 hours in length. Previous twining experience is suggested.

Fee is $80 and includes materials, and lunch.
