The State Indian Museum is proud to offer basket weaving demonstrations by Dixie Rogers on two upcoming Saturdays, March 3, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Mesmerizing to watch and fun to learn, Dixie Rogers is a traditional basket weaver from the Karuk tribe and uses a technique called Closed Half Twist-Twined With Overlay. She incorporates a number of native California plants into her intricate and original basket creations. There is no cost for these special demonstrations although regular Museum admission prices do apply.
