Meeting Place: Lakeview Room of the Visitor Center
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Cherokees are skilled weavers who began moving to this area as early as 1700s and continued to move through the area during the Trail of Tears. They used honeysuckle and button brush to create beautiful baskets. Join a park interpreter in the Lakeview Room and learn to weave a Cherokee style double wall basket. This will be a hands-on program with limited space (pre-registration is required). The registration fee covers the cost of materials. Come prepared to get a little wet and watch your basket take shape before your eyes.
