Basket Making Class - August 18th - 5 pm to 8 pm

Come join in on the fun, as we learn how to make birch bark containers, used in Native American Culture.  Each participant will be working with natural white birch and will get to create a container for dry materials, which will hold approximately ½ to ¾ gallon of materials.  For this class we will be cutting out, forming and sewing birch bark containers, using spruce root.  Participants will be working with sharp tools, so this class is recommended for ages 12 and above.  However, if younger children would like to participate, they can assist a parent in the project. Please be prepared to come and work, so your hands and clothes might get a little dirty.  Please register early… The birch bark class will have a minimum of 10 and maximum of 15 participants.  The cost for this class will be $30 person.  We can’t wait to see to see you there!!!
