MAGC Basketry Garden Tour

Charlie Kennard leads a tour of his basketry plant garden

Free event

Charlie Kennard will lead a tour of the basketry plant garden he has created at MAGC, on a sloping site adjacent to the Barn Theater.

Some 70 different species of fiber plants—the majority California natives—are on display, together with giant baskets, woven fences, and straw beehives.

Charlie will bring a selection of baskets to show, and will explain the cultivation and processing of the plants from which they are made.

Bio: Charlie Kennard of San Anselmo is a long-time basket weaver and student of California Indian and European techniques. He has taught for MAPOM, Point Reyes Field Institute, East Bay Regional Parks Botanic Garden, the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation, and in many schools and at teacher trainings. Tule boats made in his workshops can be seen at the California Academy of Sciences, the Bay Model in Sausalito, and another is in the collection of the Lake County Museum. Charlie is also active in native habitat restoration in Marin, managing several projects for Friends of Corte Madera Creek Watershed.
