Birch bark easily has a 1000 year plus history of use in Scandinavia, the Baltic countries and Russia. Students will learn to prepare birch bark from the tree, use a carving knife safely & with confidence, layout a traditional “finger type joint,” and fit a bottom and lid of pine to their box. Come experience a rare opportunity to use amazing birch bark. The instructor will supply all tools and materials. (You must have enough hand strength to open a slightly tight jar to succeed in this class).
