Pam leads participants in a workshop.
On Saturday, August 10 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, the Abbe will offer the opportunity to study traditional basketmaking with Penobscot Basketmaker, Pam "outdusis" Cunningham. In this workshop, you will learn how to weave your own fancy ash and sweetgrass trinket basket. Pam is known for making baskets with special meanings, as well as beautiful ornamental pieces. Her mastery of this traditional art form combined with her experience in teaching makes Pam a perfect mentor for students of any age that wish to learn how to weave. Registration required.
