In this workshop you will learn the ancient art of making folded baskets out of white pine bark. From actually peeling the bark from a log to sewing the container, this is a hands-on workshop where you will really get to know the material. Each participant will choose a piece of bark from those we have peeled and learn how to make a pattern to fold this flexible square piece of bark into a vessel. Different sewing materials, including twine, hemp, and basswood fiber, will be used to sew the vessel and attach a rim. Each person’s project will turn out to be completely unique. Everyone will leave with a completed basket, handouts on everything covered during the workshop and a new appreciation for the beautiful and abundant white pine tree.
Prerequisites: All levels welcome - Some hand strength and dexterity is helpful for peeling the bark and sewing.
Note: This workshop will be held in a heated tent. Your hands may be in and out of water.

Students should bring: a pair of scissors you don't mind getting dirty.
