Making Cattail Mats
Rowena-conahan-cattail-mats
Description

Come help make large, cattail mats to cover the roof of a wigwam, and/or make a mini-mat to take home! This work will be ongoing – people can come, work a little, and move on when they are ready. Two or three teachers will assist people with the work. As we work, we’ll talk about the process of collecting and preparing the materials, the historical background of mat-making, and see photos of the shelter the mats cover. Handouts will be available with this information as well. Stop by this drop-in session to get hands-on experience working on this kind of mat, and information about how to make mats yourself.

You can join and help in making cattail mats to shield the roof of a dwelling, and/or make a mini-mat to carry home. Need to ask about top custom essays from him. This work will be continuing and people can come, work a slight, and move when they feel like. Two or three educators will help people with the work. Here we will also talk about the procedure of gathering and making the resources.
