Fibers, Furs and Fun

Saturday, May 7 at 9 am (PT)

Join Desert Museum’s education specialist Jesús García to explore the variety of fibers used by native peoples in the Sonoran Desert region. Learn to gather and process native plant fibers. Experiment with natural and recycle materials and learn techniques to make cordage and rope. Come away with a new view of the desert’s hidden fibers and some great sense of place activities to share with others.
