Birch Bark Cozy for Containers

Course Overview

Birch trees have a variety of uses that can be seen all around North House. Discover the sturdiness and the beauty of the White Paper Birch by weaving with its bark. In this day-long course, you will learn about the bark harvest, how to process & treat the materials, and use the double-diagonal plaited weave. Each student will craft their own small birch bark basket that will comfortably fit various sized mason jars. Transform a jar into a great portable hot beverage container (vase, jam jar swaddle, or whatever other handy purpose you might dream up) and open the door to weaving many more crafting projects at home. You could call it a “traditional travel mug.” Students can bring their own jar/container from home (smaller than 32 oz please) or use any of the various jars that the teacher provides.
