Birch Bark Wish Basket
Create a basket in the double woven Scandinavian style. This birch bark basket is woven up and then back down onto itself to create a sturdy yet flexible object. We will explore base shapes and rim designs before adding the "wish" beads. The beads are woven with a wish inside of each one, and then sewn onto the surface of the basket with either glass beads or leather.
This course will be part of Basket Week 2019! Plan to stay an extra day for the Basket Gathering on Friday, October 25 for demonstrations, talks and community gatherings.
