Learn to Make a Tule Water Bottle Basket, with Chris Morasky
Tules, aka bulrushes, are an incredible plant that is easy to weave! We'll be weaving a simple, beautiful and useful basket around a water bottle. Tules (pronounced too-lees) are like "foam" on the inside, so this covering offers substantial protection and insulation to a glass bottle. This class is a great introduction to the wonderful world of tule weaving, which includes a wide variety of baskets, mats, hats, ropes and straps and even shoes! Come out and have fun as we weave together! Cost: $55 + $15 materials fee.

About your instructor: Chris Morasky is a wildlife biologist with over 30 years experience teaching Stone Age skills and nature connection and is considered one of the top Stone Age skills experts in North America. This program is a rare and unique opportunity to experience living "with" nature from someone who has actually done it. Chris has lived most of the past 20+ years in the wilderness and small communities of British Columbia, Idaho and Utah. He lived in a tipi for 6 years, homesteaded along the most remote mail route in the lower 48 states and led totally Stone Age expeditions into the wilderness of Idaho and Oregon. His teachers include Lakota, Shoshone, Arapaho, Crow, Blackfeet and Serri tribesmen, many wilderness skills experts and life itself. Chris’ workshops focus on awakening instincts, ancient skills and deep nature connection as doorways to understand more fully who we are, why we're here, and where we’re headed. Testimonials from Chris' students and parents: "It was awesome, transformative. Valuable skills and great wisdom was shared.
