Parkin Archeological Park to host basketweaving workshop

Learn craft of Mississippian Indians

From Mel Z. Harvey, Park Interpreter Parkin Archeological State Park

Archeologists have been lucky enough to find examples of basketry from the Mississippian Indian time period and have learned to create replica baskets. Spend the day at Parkin Archeological State Park Visitor Center on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a park interpreter and make your very own basket. You might just create a perfect holiday gift for someone! A $20 fee covers materials and instruction. Preregistration is required. Ages 12 and above, please. Call Park Interpreter Mel at 870-755-2500 or email her at mel.harvey@arkansas.gov to sign up!
