Woven Hanging Birch Bark Stars
Ages: Adult – ages 15 and up
Day/Time: SATURDAY, April 2, 2022
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
During this class taught by artist Elena Bantle, students will learn how to weave a hanging star from strips of birch bark.
Students will also learn about sustainable birch bark harvest and gain a new appreciation for this local resource. Materials will be prepped for you, and you will also learn how to prep materials for yourself. You will learn several examples of what can be accomplished using this weaving technique.
If you complete a star, we might have time to learn how to make birch bark beads, which can be strung along with your star. This is a process with a learning curve – though it may feel clumsy at first, the end result will be one to be proud of.
