Event Details

Baskets have long been an integral part of Native American culture as storage containers, carrying baskets, cradleboards, and in burial practices.  Bark from pine, ash, or birch was often used to make the baskets and sewn together with spruce root.  Join Jennifer Lee, of Algonkian Heritage, who will guide participants in making a traditional bark basket using white pine bark, spruce root, and willow.  Choose from several baskets designs and enjoy!
