Pile on the Photographic and Native American Intrigue in N. Oregon Coast's Tiny Netarts

(Netarts, Oregon) – October and November don't slow down, it seems. If you've forgotten you could still do the Oregon coast this time of year, even outdoors, one group in Tillamook County is here to remind you. Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS (Watershed, Estuary, Bay & Sea) has some exciting and educational community events in store for October and November. While they're inside (or they're online), some are partially outdoors and you'll be able to use these skills in the great, big wilderness of the coastline.

There's a full roster for fall, with WEBS offering a photography series in two parts, a Native American basket weaving workshop and a presentation on local tribal history.

For both Part 1 and Part II of the photography series, WEBS will host talented and knowledgeable instructors who will help you to achieve your next best photograph. The Native American Basket Weaving workshop will be led by Brian Krehbiel of the Confederated Tribes of the Grande Ronde, and the Lifeways of the Tillamook is a fascinating presentation by tribal tradition keeper, Stephanie Craig (Wood).

Find out more about these north Oregon coast events at netartsbaywebs.org/events, which also have online options. To find the exact location in Netarts you have to begin the registration process.

The first happens Sunday, October 15 with Photography on the Bay - Part 1: Exploring Photographic Composition, at 10 a.m. It's all about composition, which is how you arrange the elements of a photo to communicate ideas and to get the viewer engaged.

For this one, you get to join others out in the Oregon coast air at the end, if you want to.

“In this class, we will explore the basics of photography composition, most of which are applicable to drawing and painting as well,” WEBS said. “We will give examples illustrating standard 'rules of thumb,' including the first rule: There are no rules! This event includes the main workshop providing tips on landscape photography and composition plus an optional field excursion.”

Michael Krall is presenter for this workshop. Krall is an avid amateur photographer and birder and has been photographing seriously for over 50 years, having taught prior photography courses as well. His works were recently featured at the Hoffman Gallery in Manzanita. Some of Michael’s photographs can be viewed, among other places, on the www.tillamookbirder website, which he webmasters. Currently, Michael is a retired family physician who divides his time between Netarts and Portland.

Registration is required; see https://netartsbaywebs.org/events. There are in-person and virtual options for this event.

On November 12 comes the second part: Photography on the Bay - Part II: Enhance Your Art at 10 a.m. This also happens in the Netarts area.

On Saturday, October 28 comes Native American Basket Weaving at 10 a.m. in the tiny north Oregon coast village. Participants will be introduced to the art of basket making during this great workshop led by Brian Krehbiel of the Confederated Tribes of the Grande Ronde.

Brian has 15+ years as a tribal educator. Although Brian is an enrolled member of Grand Ronde, his tribal lineage descends from Nipissing band of Ojibway, Chinook, Luckiamute Kalapuya, Umpqua, Iroquois, Shasta, Tillamook, Takilma, Mary’s River Kalapuya, German, Irish and Spanish. Brian will give a short presentation on gathering native vegetation and materials, processing, and basket making, along with how he learned to make baskets. After the introduction, he will guide 15 people in making a small basket from start to finish using native plants that he and others will provide.

Registration is required; see https://netartsbaywebs.org/events.

On Saturday, November 4, engage in the past with the Lifeways of the Tillamook at 10 a.m.

The Netarts area is composed of the land and waters of the Tillamook and has been a vital part of the lives of people for centuries. Join Netarts Bay WEBS in welcoming Stephanie Craig (Wood). Stephanie is a “tradition keeper” and will share her experiences as a basket maker and ethnobotanist. Participants will have the opportunity to explore tribal lifeways and culture, the history of tribal communities, and learn about traditional foods, medicines, utilitarian plants, and more.

Registration is required; see https://netartsbaywebs.org/events.

There is no cost to attend WEBS programs. Tax-exempt donations to Netarts Bay WEBS to enable programs like these are encouraged, but not required.
