      A Tradition of Making: Californian Native Basketry

      A Tradition of Making: Californian Native Basketry is an interactive exhibition exploring the history and art of baskets and basket making. The exhibit was curated by Julia Parker, a Native Californian basket maker, teacher, and storyteller along with three generations of her family of weavers. The display includes examples of the Parkers’ own work along with baskets from the Randall Museum’s collection. The baskets are interpreted for visitors using the Parkers’ own words, providing firsthand knowledge about native baskets, describing the varied forms and functions, along with the many uses and traditions.

      Designed for visitors of all ages, the exhibition explores the rich history of basket making in California with beautiful artifacts, unique insights from a family of Native Californian weavers, and weaving stations for hands-on learning of basic basket making techniques.

      The exhibit is open during regular museum hours:
      10am - 5pm, Tuesday - Saturday
