Mixed-level cedar bark weaving to be offered in Ketchikan

Renowned Haida weaver Diane Douglas-Willard will lead a mixed-level cedar bark weaving class at the Totem Heritage Center in Ketchikan Oct. 26 through Nov. 6. The evening class runs Mondays through Fridays, from 6–9 p.m. and is open to students of all levels of ability and experience.

In the class, Douglas-Willard will help weavers refine their skills, practice new techniques, or begin with traditional weaving basics. Open-weave clam or seaweed baskets will be the primary project focus. Beginning students will receive instruction in small open-weave or rattle-top baskets.

Registration is open and ongoing. Participants can register in person, over the phone or via mail. Call the Totem Heritage Center at 225-5900 or email StaceyW@city.ketchikan.ak.us
