About the Event

When birchbark (wiigwass) is harvested during the winter months it has a very thin layer that oxidizes and turns very dark. This bark is called “winter bark” and is prized for basketry because designs can be scratched into the surface.

In this class we will learn the traditional art of etching “winter bark” on small practice squares. The possibilities are endless; the technique is simple. Finished pieces can be taken home and framed or displayed “as is”.

Class size is limited to six (6) participants. Cost is $25 per person. All materials and tools will be provided along with a copy of the traditional Ojibwe story that will be shared at the start of the class.
