Weave a Paiute-Style Water Bottle

These beautiful bottles were traditionally coated with pine pitch inside and out to make them water tight or used uncoated as seed containers. We’ll practice splitting and trimming willow shoots, then we’ll begin weaving a close-twined bottle using whole willow shoots for the warps and split willow shoots for the wefts. A variety of twined willow baskets will be at hand for students to examine.
