Students will learn basic techniques for gathering, preparing, storing and weaving with all parts of the Western Red Cedar as they are guided through the construction of the folded and sewn bark pouch, traditionally made in the Salish Sea region for gathering berries or holding implements. Bark removing, measuring, scoring, sewing, inner bark preparation, multiple flat braiding, and 4 strand round braiding, will be techniques students learn through the creation of their own beautiful pouches.
