Add to Wait List
Class is full

Learn how to make your own birch bark basket. We will take the time in class to learn about the traditional crafting techniques and create our own piece of art. We will go over how to identify and collect birch bark, the materials that will be used are natural and commonly used materials. We will go over tools to use for collection and for creating a basket. There are many designs and ways you can create a birch bark basket. We will go over a few different types and allow the students to be creative in making their own basket. All basket material must be prepared, and we will go through that process. We will also go over how to stitch and lash the bark together using sinew and discuss using spruce roots as well. This is a great opportunity to create something beautiful with natural resources. The course fee will cover all material, use of tools, and instruction.
