Crafting the Birch Bark Star: Unplugged XII Mini Course

Course Overview

The story of the birch tree is integral to the North House story. In the capable hands of our teachers and students alike, this one tree is shaped into skis, boats, canoes, baskets, spoons, and even shoes. Join instructor Julie Kean for a quintessential birch bark project—weaving a birch bark star. Careful folding, a bit of string and lots of patience will be rewarded with a beautiful ornament. Discussion of birch ecology and the history of birch craft will be part of the morning as well.
