Birch Bark Star Ornament
August 10, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Saturday, August 10, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm | $45 | Registration required
Birch is a northern symbol and featured in Scandinavian traditions. With careful folding and patience, you will create a 3-dimensional birch bark star. A birch bark bead shape and variation will also be taught. You may add additional beads of your choice to your ornament—I will provide some, or feel free to bring your own. These stars are perfect as a holiday or year-round ornament for decorating your home, or for gift-giving. There will be some birch bark weaving discussion as we go along. No prior experience is necessary. Max: 8 students
Birch bark and other materials will be supplied. If you have particular beads you would like to use in place of the instructor-supplied ones, feel free to bring them.
Supplies to bring to class
• Small needle nose pliers
