About the event

Cattails (Typha) also known as bulrush, punks, or the corndog plant, are truly amazing! This plant provides food in several forms throughout the season, and also bears leaves which are useful material to weave with, or make into cordage.

Learn to make plaited and twined cattail baskets. We'll cover identification, gathering, storage and processing, and the basic techniques required to make several types of cattail baskets, or even a hat. Make your basket as big as your proficiency will allow. Everyone will make a beautiful basket! $40 includes all required tools and materials.
