Make a completely unique, locally sourced, handmade necklace! Students will be introduced to the history and ecology of birch trees and discuss sustainable harvesting practices, then spend the rest of the day splitting bark and learning how to make three-fold, four-fold and cube style birch bark beads. After creating a few dozen bark beads, students will combine them with colorful glass beads to string together a beautiful (and hard wearing) birch bark necklace. This class is appropriate for new and more experienced basket weavers, and is a great opportunity to discover a new appreciation for birch and weaving. Please note that this class requires some hand strength and good finger dexterity.

Minimum age 15; students under 18 must be registered alongside an adult.

Cost: $85 for ASI members / $95 for non-members, plus an additional $25 materials fee payable to the instructor.
