SOLD OUT Nordic Craft Workshop: Birch Bark Necklaces with Beth Homa Kraus

Saturday, May 18, 2019 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Make a completely unique, locally sourced, handmade necklace! Students will be introduced to the history and ecology of birch trees and discuss sustainable harvesting practices, then spend the rest of the day splitting bark and learning how to make three-fold, four-fold and cube style birch bark beads. After creating a few dozen bark beads, students will combine them with colorful glass beads to string together a beautiful (and hard-wearing) birch bark necklace. This class is appropriate for new and more experienced basket weavers, and is a great opportunity to discover a new appreciation for birch and weaving. Please note that this class requires some hand strength and good finger dexterity.

An additional $25 materials fee is payable to the instructor.

Registration recommended by May 10.
$85 ASI members / $95 non-members
