Participants will identify, locate and harvest birch bark from the landscape; prepare and process it for weaving and create a basket of your design using the ancient and effective plaiting technique.  We will explore several variations of plaited weaving in the styles of the ancient Russians, Finns and Scandinavians.  The weaving techniques that you will learn in this class are applicable to a wide variety of natural materials other than birch bark.
