April Stone – Weaving the Black Ash Hand Basket Bag
Date(s) - November 9, 2017 - November 12, 2017
North House Folk School
500 Highway 61 West
The course will start with an in-depth discussion of the black ash splint harvesting process, including log pounding and material storage. From there, students will try their hand at splitting using two techniques: hands and a “splitting brake,” followed by prepping our pre-selected raw materials using sharp knives, scissors and a slitting gauge. Note, this project requires some hand strength to complete.
