Workshops will meet in the Hammer Lobby

Bamboo Mat-Making

Participants will trim, and carve a stack of locally harvested bamboo rods. Then each student will twine each rod together to make a large floor mat. These mats have been used for sleeping, for window curtains, etc. Size of each mat will depend on how much bamboo we have.

Requirement: Each student must bring a knife.

Information on processing bamboo shoots will be included in the class.
