PUMPKINS ON PIKES 2019

Pumpkins on Pikes is one of those very special events where magic is created and experienced by all who attend.

The festivities start in the afternoon with great food, music and pumpkin carving. Everyone will get the chance to display their Jack-O-Lantern on a pike in the corn field. When the sun goes down the pumpkins are lit. It is a truly heart warming feeling looking over the glowing corn field to see the individual creations of all who attend.

Twilled Cattail Mat Workshop with Charlie Kennard

Twilled Cattail Mat Workshop with Charlie Kennard

宝贝你下面的水儿真甜$90 Includes some materials*

We will make plaited table mats based on a central Mexican technique for rodilleros, mats for kneeling on when grinding corn at home, or using the stove. When new, they have a delightful grassy scent, and a muted variable green color. The technique involves smacking the strips with a cobble, so this will be a noisy workshop! Some experience with handweaving is recommended.

*Registration includes weaving materials except you should plan to bring large scissors, a house-painter’s brush, water bowl, and lunch. If you like to work on the floor, bring a cushion. The workshop will be in an open-sided barn, so dress accordingly.



Charlie Kennard of San Anselmo is a long-time basket weaver and student of California Indian and other traditional basketry techniques. He has taught for the Point Reyes Field Institute, East Bay Regional Parks Botanic Garden, the Laguna Center in Santa Rosa and in many schools and at many teacher trainings. Tule boats made in his workshops can be seen at the Bay Model in Sausalito, Lake County Museum, and another is in the collection of the Oakland Museum. You can also visit a basketry plant garden Charlie has created at the Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, where he and friends wove a basket 13 feet across. Charlie is active in native habitat restoration in Marin, managing several projects for Friends of Corte Madera Creek Watershed.
