About This Event

Join us at the Minnesota History Center for a three-part “Artists In The Gallery” series. Watch a demonstration and participate in nettle plant fiber weaving with Fern Renville, 2023 Native American Artist in Residence. 

Throughout the day, Fern will be demonstrating how nettle plant fiber can be processed into cordage and will be weaving a community fishing net. 

Fern is an artist and a member of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate who is working to bring her experience with fiber art, pottery, and weaving art back to her Dakota homelands. She will be teaching, telling stories, and sharing the knowledge she has learned through her residency with museum guests. Visitors are welcome to attend on April 14, April 21, and April 28.

This program is made possible in part by a grant from Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies.
