Birch Bark Pouches @North House Folk School

  • North House Folk School 500 Minnesota 61 Grand Marais, MN, 55604 United States (map)

In this introduction into plaited basketry, learn about the harvest and process of birch bark, by creating a small pouch out of birch bark. Students will learn the basics of the double diagonal plaited weave pattern and elaborate further by adding a woven bark flap to make a pouch, measuring approximately 4.5"x 3.5"x1." Students are encouraged to bring their own antler, toggles, or beads for closures. The instructor will bring leather for a wrap around tie or for attachments.
