I'm looking for a class or a person to teach me how to weave baskets?  I love the art and would be delighted to be able to create them. Please advise if there are classes or someone who teaches.

I saw a demonstration of Chumash basket weaving through the education division of the Natural History Museum. Contact "Kristen" in the edu office for info.

Oh my! In the early 90s when I was going through college I remember people joking about others getting degrees in "basket weaving". Haven't heard that term in a long time. Good luck finding a class, sounds like a fun hobby!

SB Botanic Garden has had basket weaving classes in the past.

Many years ago they offered a weekend workshop through the leisure program at UCSB, but I haven’t seen it for many years.

Possibly the Santa Ynez Chumash have some sort of a cultural center where they teach classes in basket weaving and/or other important cultural activities.

The Museum hosts a monthly weaving session, but it is not a class. They might consider offering a class if there is sufficient interest; contact Community Education Manager Stefanie Coleman. Meanwhile, an informal basketry class led by Susan Robles is held at the Old Mission on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

The Schott center has one, I believe.. Or one may befriend a Chumash & possibly attend one of our classes. Chumash basketry is known as the finest among Native baskets.
