Basket-weaver Charlie Kennard presents and discusses a wide variety of his baskets made from plants he grows or gathers locally.

Charlie’s passion is the time-tested indigenous basketry of the western U.S., Europe and East Asia, and the deep knowledge of native plants that is inherent to it. This is a rare opportunity to see many of his baskets in the round!

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.
