The Studium West Lecture Series at Peninsula College Forks is proud to present “Generations of Makah Weavers – Art of Basketry,” by Melissa Peterson November 22 at 7:00pm, at the Forks campus.
This free lecture and presentation will focus on the history, culture, artistry and importance of weaving. Peterson will discuss how these skills are passed down through generations, as well as the importance of teaching these skills. After her presentation, she will offer a hands-on weaving activity to demonstrate the art of Makah basketry.
Peterson is a member of the Makah tribe of Neah Bay and a master weaver. She began weaving as a child and has continued the tradition throughout her life. Over the years, she has mastered many styles of traditional Makah basket weaving, including some older styles that are rarely practiced today.
The event is free and open to the public.
