Seattle - Beginning in December, the Burke Museum will offer special workshops in Native American traditional arts and crafts. From beading to basketry to drum-making, there's a course for anyone interested in learning more about the art and culture of Northwest Coast Native peoples. All workshops take place at the Burke Museum and afford a great opportunity to also visit the landmark exhibition, Out of the Silence: The Enduring Power of Totem Poles. Registration is required as space is limited.
