2-Day Workshop: Twilled Cattail Mat
Mar 2 & 3, 2020 (Monday and Tuesday), 9:30 am – 3:30 pm
Cotati Community Center, 201 West Sierra Avenue, Cotati, CA, in the Willow Classroom (map)

You will make plaited table mats (like the greenish one pictured) based on a central Mexican technique for rodilleros, mats for kneeling on when grinding corn at home. When new, they have a delightful grassy scent and a muted variable green color. The technique involves the frequent smacking of the fabric with a rock, so this workshop will be noisy! The mats are typically made on the floor, but we will use tables. All basket-making materials are included in the registration fee.

Participants bring: a water bowl, a wide house-painting brush, large scissors, and, if you wish to work on the floor, a thin cushion, as well as your own lunch.

Class size: maximum of 14 students

Ability level: beginners welcome

2-day workshop for guild members: $145.00 (includes materials) – registration open now
2-day workshop for non-guild members: $180.00 (includes materials) – registration opens Nov 1
