Event Details

Visual and teaching artist Chloë Hight will be creating a woven sculpture with natural material as a part of The Exquisite Gorge Project II: Fiber Arts.

Cordage is a gathering of fiber twisted together to create a more resilient form.  In this class at the The History Museum of Hood River County, Chloë Hight will lead students in making lengths of cordage using a variety of locally gleaned plant materials like daylily, cattail,  iris, and Himalayan blackberry (plant selection is seasonally dependent). We will explore the significance that cordage carries as a traditional hand technology that is an innate part of the human story and our connection to place.

Cost: FREE; workshop is limited to 15 participants, so register early!
