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. The cost of the workshop is $40 for Abbe Museum
members, $65 for non-members. Space is limited. Please contact Museum
Educator George Neptune to make reservations at (207) 288-3519, ext 31 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission
with matching support provided by Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.
The Abbe Museum’s commitment centers Indigenous people in their own histories, stories, and futures, correcting harmful representations of the past. Your support helps make this happen!
