Spiro Mounds afforded researchers a treasure trove of Mississippian material culture. It was full of pottery, woven textiles, incised shells, beaded clothing and many more examples of Native art and craftsmanship. During Spring Break try your hand at similar crafts. Drop by and participate in family-friendly activities and create a different make-and-take craft each day. No reservations required. Activities are available while supplies last. Free for Museum members or with Museum admission.
The art of twining is an old style of Cherokee textile weaving using twine made from tree bark or other plant fibers to make bags or clothing. Try a twining craft with Cherokee National Treasure in Textiles, Tonia Weavel.
