Birch Bark Tote
July 10 @ 9:00 am - July 11 @ 4:00 pm$100
This workshop is a great introduction to the amazing qualities of the inner bark of the paper birch tree. We will start with a demonstration of harvesting bark from a tree on Sanborn Mills Farm. Students will then have the opportunity to process bark into strips that are usable for weaving. With that material, along with some previously harvested and prepared by Penny, students will learn how to diagonal plait while crafting an 8” x 8”x 3” tote bag with a riveted leather strap.
