We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Winter in the great North Woods can be magic – quietly trekking through deep snow on your very own handcrafted wooden snowshoes.

Make Your Own Snowshoes at the Duluth Folk School

In this class you will use a locally made kit with black ash frames and black polyester lacing, to weave your own pair of traditional snowshoes. The black ash frames are flexible and strong, and the polyester lacing is extremely durable and long lasting.

Developing the skill of lacing and following the pattern can be difficult at first, but with guidance from our expert instructor, you will get the hang of it, to the point of enjoying the lacing process.  Many people want to do more snowshoes, once they have done their first pair.

Techniques for weaving, learning the right knots to use, and how to care for your snowshoes are all part of the class.
