“Kago” Weaving Workshop

May 7, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

We are hosting a “Kago” basket weaving workshop at Rintaro in San Francisco with the artist Rimiko Berreman Berreman and the facilitator, Maki Aizawa.

Early this year, we presented a “Shimenawa” workshop using tule. For the upcoming sessions, we will create our own basket, using the unique characteristics of tule. When tule is dry, it is fragile but when it is wet, it feels similar to leather.


For the Pomo and Miwok tribes, tule is often used in ceremonial head pieces and dance costumes. It is also used in making houses, clothing, mats, baskets, and tools. Rimiko has been working with tule since 2004, honoring the Native American tradition.


  • The workshop is 2 hours and will be conducted in the courtyard of Rintaro.
  • The participants are up to 12 people.
  • No experience is needed to take this workshop.
  • The cost is $175. The materials, hand-picked by Rimiko in California, are included.
