Birch Bark Stars
December 4, 2022
9:00 am - 11:00 am
During this class, you will learn how to weave a star ornament from strips of birch bark!
You’ll learn about sustainable birch bark harvest, and gain a new appreciation for this local resource. Materials will be prepped for you, and you will also learn how to prep materials for yourself. You will learn several examples of what can be accomplished using this weaving technique.
If you complete a star, we might have time to learn how to make birch bark beads, which can be strung along with your ornament. This is a process with a learning curve – though it may feel clumsy at first, the end result is one to be proud of.
Instruction and all materials. You will learn about how to sustainably harvest birch bark, and you’ll go home with a star ornament, and with practice, the knowledge of how to make many more!
