Cattail Tote Bag

Course Overview

Wondering what to do with all those cattails growing down by the pond? Learn how to make a handy and stylish tote bag. Students will learn how to plait with the cattail leaves and assemble a tote bag. The basic checker weave (usually done with palm fronds) will be taught using cattails and iris leaves, giving this project a distinctly northern flair. As time permits more complex weaves will be taught. Previous experience is not necessary but sewing skills are helpful. Materials supplied. Please note, this class begins with a short-two hour evening session to make the most of your time on campus.
