Come join us on for a festive and fun-filled event at the Maxwell’s Hibben Center! Get into the holiday spirit and unleash your creativity as you craft beautiful ornaments made of local red willow with the talented artist and basket maker, Jilli M. Oyenque. For more than 20 years, she has been making red willow baskets in the tradition of her Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo (Santa Juan) community.

So, whether you're a beginner or an experienced craft enthusiast, this workshop is perfect for all skill levels. Learn various techniques and tips from Jilli herself as she guides you through the process.

This workshop is supported by the UNM Alfonso Ortiz Center for Intercultural Studies and is in celebration of the  two exhibits on Native basket technology currently on display at the Maxwell. All materials will be provided.

Eventbrite registration here is not required as this is a first come, first serve event, but it is encouraged as it helps us plan.
