CANCELLED Nordic Handcraft Workshop: Birch Bark Clutch

Saturday, April 18, 2020 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

This class meets on Saturday, April 18 & Sunday April 19, from 10 a .m. – 5 p.m. each day

Learn about the harvest and use of the paper birch while creating a small clutch out of locally harvested birch bark. Students will learn the basics of the double diagonal plaited weave pattern and elaborate further by adding a woven bark or leather flap. The clutch’s size is roughly 7” x 4” and will have a small handle – perfect for phone, keys and wallet. This will easily become your favorite accessory!

Students are encouraged to bring their own antler, toggle or beads for closures. The instructor will bring leather for a flap and a wrap-around tie or other attachments. Students need no prior basket weaving experience, but should have good finger dexterity and hand strength. Minimum participation age 16.

An additional $50 materials fee is payable to the instructor.

$155 ASI members / $175 non-members
