Crafting Tools the American Indian Way

CraftingToolsAmIndWayThe MARC invites you to learn something new about American Indian culture, try your hand at crafting one of the important tools of American Indian life and help us add something special to our American Indian ex-hibits during this three session workshop on net-making.

Donna Atkins, an area artisan who produces beautiful and useful reproductions of tools used by American Indians in our region, will demonstrate and supervise the process from wrapping bark and other natural materials into cordage to assembling a working fishing net. The finished net will be put on display at the MARC to help visitors imagine a different way of life.
